Dearest Tina and Annie,

I loved Bob's quirky laugh and his insights on how he viewed this world. When you were in his presence it was like a cat who would wake up from a cozy nap, hey daddy's home and what is he up to today.

I personally have never been to California, but after meeting your family, I know that you felt a real sense of love, freedom and peace.

My prayers for you two is that you will always carry on his legacy. You girls were the light of his world and he was the flame in yours.

Our heavenly father knows that peace that surpasses all understanding, may you find that peace that will carry you in all your days ahead.

Light of the World
You stepped down into darkness
Open my eyes
Let me see
Beauty that made
This heart adore You
Hope of a life
Spent with You
