May the road rise to meet you,
May the wind be always at your back,
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
the rains fall soft upon your fields and, until we meet again,
May GOD hold you in the palm of his hand.

Thank you Bob for giving us Mary, and in turn her children. Thank you for your service in the war you fought for our country. Every free person in America should thank you for the risk you took to protect our freedom. You were very patient with Mary and I during our highschool years. Rest in Peace Bob, you will be missed.

I haven't seen your family in many years, but I have always thought of you all often. I will always remember the hugs and the loud deep voice that would yell out "Blondie", sometimes before I would ever enter the room. Bob had a great heart and truly loved all his family and friends. He will be greatly missed, but never forgotten. Juanita keep your head high during this difficult time. Bob will forever be your Angel. To all the children and grandchildren, Bob lived and loved for you. Never forget the memories.
