I have known Bob and Sara for several years , it has been pleasure to have known them and spent time visiting with them . We also took a trip with them to Mexico and had a great time . We had many laughs and fun on that trip . Perhaps I will have an opportunity to tell some of the family some of it sometime . They will be missed by family and friends .

Bob and Sara were the kindest people. My dad helped Bob do some farming when I was around 9(?). We spent many afternoons and evenings out at their farm. He will be missed. Tell Sara hello!
