Praying for Laurie and Crissy and your family. Bob was so proud of you all. His face lit up every time he spoke about you. Debbie was the love of his life and I know she welcomed him home with loving arms. Laurie and Crissy, and each one of the grandchildren were always in Bob's heart. He loved sharing stories and pictures from his visits - His love for you radiated out of him! May God bless each of you with the comfort of warm, loving memories of happier times with your beloved Dad until you meet again. Prayers for peace and much love to you all, Gari Carter.

We were so sorry to hear of the loss of Bob. He & Debby were sour neighbors for a number of years. We did so enjoy their company and do miss them both.
