I was so sorry to hear about Bob's passing; he will truly be missed by all who knew and loved him. As you face the difficult times ahead, rely on our heavenly father for strength and support. 1 John 5:14 says: This is the confidence that we have toward God, that no matter what we ask according to his will, he hears us.

I am very sorry for your loss. However, you can take comfort in the Bible, specifically at 1 Thessalonians 4: 14, which says "For if we have faith that Jesus died and rose again, so too God will bring with him those have fallen asleep in death through Jesus."

I've only known Bob and Virginia since I moved back to Austin, but it was obvious right away that these are good people and would be good neighbors, and even good friends. Bob will definitely be missed by my family and me. Good men always leave happy foot prints on the roads of our lives. Jo Ann Johnson

Virginia, We are so sorry to hear about the passing of Bob. Jeri always spoke highly of her dad, she always said what a great father he was. We only met him once but we thought highly of him. Our condolences to your family.

With deepest sympathy. I enjoyed visiting with him most every week while he took care of his Mother. She will miss his visits.
