I grew up spending a lot of time in Bob & Diane’s home. Bob was a huge part of our childhood. There are to many memories to mention (of the time I spent with them.) I’m so fortunate that I was able to see Bob in person last October. I will miss him terribly. My heart is torn to pieces for Diane and my Cousins. Rest In Peace Bob, we love you and you will be missed by many.

For as long as I can remember, you were there with my daddy and Gary. I am sure that they were waiting for you. I know the 3 of you will be playing music, fishing, throwing horseshoes and many other things that I remember. May peace be with you and all that will miss you.
