Having walked in your shoes Donna, I know there are no words that express my heartfelt sympathy at your loss. Steve loved Robert and really wanted to move there and work with him. I will never forget the Bocook family hospitality and kindness as we struggled to make the choice to remain in Utah. My heart goes out to you and your family.

My dearest sympathy to you all in the loss of your husband, son, and brother. My childhood in Price, Utah has such fond memories of the entire Bocook Family. We all came together for parties, birthdays, and on a more serious note the loss of Robbie's Father Dave. My father Thomas Kerns had the utmost respect of the man Robert carried on to be for his family. I'm so very sorry. I pray for you to find peace in this difficult time. Much love and prayers for you all.
