Bob is a very special man to me. Every childhood holiday memory especially Christmas has Bob in it. I will forever cherish my memories of early morning boat rides-trips to the store for "me" to get a treat-and our outings in the RV. I may have never called him by the name "grandpa" but that is exactly what he was to me...and he was top notch..
Bob your stories and wonderful memories will live on!

Dearest Bob: You are in my heart forever. Your character was "Heads and Shoulders" above all the rest. We shared memories of adventures, got out of tough situations, and ended the day by sitting outside with God and nature.
You are a treasure to me.
