Another in our Salyers generation is gone, but he will never be forgotten. We have so many wonderful memories. I'm posting a picture that is one of our favorites: Bob with our grandson Jackson Salyers. Look at those faces! The "Salyers look" continues!

Condolences to Brenda and to all who loved Bob.
Love,
David and Fran Salyers
