Dear Renee and family,
I just wanted to let you know how sorry we are to hear about your dad.
He was always so pleasant when we saw him at church and was always so interested in Chris and Katie’s lives. Always wanted to know how my son was doing out west fighting fires and how my daughter was doing as a teacher.
He was also so kind to my husband. Your family and St. John’s has lost a very special man.
Rhonda (Hensley) Sanderman

To Bob's Family,

I am so grateful to have had your Dad as a wonderful neighbor and friend for over 50 years. He was the best, even when he would jokingly accuse me of sending all the leaves from my yard across Manning Road to his yard. He will be missed by many!
