I’m grateful I got to meet Bob when I became part of the family. I spent most of the day sitting with him and listening to his stories of traveling across the country.

When my daughter was about 2 years old she used to love running around Grandpa’s chair and saying “boo.” No matter how long she wanted to play, Grandpa never made her stop. He acted surprised every single trip around the chair. He loved the family. He was awesome with the children.

I also remember at my cousin’s wedding, he was kissed by my girlfriend on the cheek. Jokingly I asked, “Grandpa, are flirting with my woman?” Without missing a beat he shrugged and said, “I didn’t think you’d notice.”

I never got to spend much time with him, but I realized what it means to live by watching him.

I remember Mr. Countryman as a kind man with a gentle spirit. He loved people and he always made you feel special. I love how he brightened my day each time that I was blessed to see him! He will be missed.

Your Dad, my dear Uncle Bob, was such a good man. I wish we'd been able to have more visits. I'm very grateful for the memories I have of him.

All my sympathy and love to my cousins. <3
