Sorry to hear of Bob's passing. I worked with him at R&R for 18 years. He had a great sense of humor.

We were saddened by Bob's passing but at the same time we rejoice in knowing he is now with our Lord and no longer suffers. Bob was one of the first people that we met when we came to Far Hills Church over 23 years ago - he greeted us at the door and continued to do so until his health would no longer allow. Carol, our prayer is for you and family to receive God's peace and comfort.
