My deepest sympathies to the family. I remember Bob well at Accident Fund. He was always kind and patient no matter how curmudgeonly the request! My very best wishes to the family - you are in my heart.

To all of Bob's family let us express our sadness of this loss. Our son reminded us that there is comfort for those grieving - The Lord is close to the brokenhearted; he rescues those whose spirits are crushed.
Psalms 34:18. Know that our Father's arms are wrapped around all of us at this time.
My favorite memories of my Dad were the yearly camping trips and all the car races we attended. He had "pit" privileges and drove me around the track one night and let me hold the checkered flag. Growing up he taught us kids a lot and even though we didn't care for it at the time those life lessons have come back on us even today as we still continue to grow. We will miss Dad very much but take solace in knowing that he is now comfortable and happy in the Glory of Heaven. We look forward to seeing you again Dad when we can rejoice with you singing Glory to God.
