So sadden to hear about Mr Spare. Will always have such wonderful memories when I saw him. He always had such wit and always made you smile. Thoughts and prayers to Mrs Spare and the family!

Ever since I was a little girl Bob has been in my life to make me laugh! What a sweet, funny, and loving man! When I wasn't going to the Huntingdon Valley Methodist church he would say to me I didn't see you at church on Sunday! I would say I go to another church now but he would say it every time I would see him and Ruth in the Robin Hood and then I finally did go back to HVMC and he would just poke some other fun at me or just give me a hug and a kiss! I remember him cutting up with everyone at the 4th of July parade and actually walking out into the parade and harassing people as they paraded by! You sure will be missed and I guess I understand you lived a long and full life here and you were called to come on home to be with Jesus! So I thank God that I had the honor of knowing you in your journey on earth and hope that I will meet with you again on our next journey with our Lord! Charlotte Oldroyd Eary
