Bob was one of the kindest most gentle man I knew. He was a good friend you could always depend on him to be there if you needed him. We loved Bob, and Theresa, so much. We will miss him so much but I'm so grateful he is no longer suffering. I never knew anyone who suffered so much and never once lost his faith in a loving Heavenly Father. What an example to all of us. R.I.P. my friend.
