To the Kosbob Family,

I'm deeply saddened to hear of your loss. I will say a prayer for you .

Back in 2000 I adopted a Golden Retriever puppy from your family. This little puppy became a very loved family member. She was called to Rainbow Bridge after giving us 13.5 happy years. I'm certain she found Bob's welcoming presence, open arms and loving smile.

May you continue to embrace the joy-filled memories your family shared. I'm so sorry for the tragic losses your family has suffered. May 2014 bring you all much deserved peace and joy.

I believe this is the William Kosbob who comforted a friend of mine who died in a fatal car crash in Baltimore in April 1991. If this is him, God Bless him for the comfort he gave Kimberly Schroeder during the hour of suffering she endured while being cut out of her car. It's nice to know that a good man was at her side when she was scared. Even though she would pass away a few hours later, it meant something for you to be there at her most desperate time and need of comfort and a friend.

Billy, Tommy, Linda and Judy all grew up on the block where I lived as a child in HHK. It was a very friendly neighborhood. Learning of Bill's passing is a reminder of days gone by. Walking to school, sledding on the hill. So sorry to hear about your loss.

I am so sorry to hear about your loss. I am a fellow Roehl driver and I'm sure I've probably met William out here on the road somewhere. Y'all will be in my thoughts and prayers

Maureen, Jeremy and Alex,
My deepest sympathies go out to you and the family. I valued the many years working with Bill during the "Hutton" days. He was one of the good ones. I was a privilege knowing him.
