We know he is watching over all of us. We love you Dad!

Bob was a courageous and self-sacrificing man. I was so sorry to hear of his passing. May your fond memories of him comfort you in the days to come. My sympathy to his family. Thankfully, Almighty God (Psalms 83:18) will not forget the good that Bob has done. Very soon now, He will put an end to all causes of pain, sickness, old age and even death, by means of his son, Jesus. May this bring you comfort and hope. I am so sorry for your loss.
