Rest in peace Bob. We shared many stories whenever we had reserves training and when we went to 2 week training throughout the country. You were a great soldier and the Army was a better place with you in it. Thank you for your service to our great country.🇺🇸

It was an honor for me to be part of your life for more than 15yrs. Hard to explain the pain you left in my heart, I will always remember every moment spent by your side. No more pain, doctor visits, or me telling you to eat eat eat many times... I Love you and I will always miss you.
