Kim and family,
I was saddened to read of Bob's death in the Cedar County News on computer. My deepest sympathies to you all. I remember several years ago when I was visiting Hartington and we were all together at Murrays? Bob and you told me you had moved to Jackpot and Bob invited me to come and visit. My prayers are with you.

Kim and Family,
I was saddened to see the obituary of Bob on the Cedar County News on my computer. My sympathies go out to you all. I remember the time I was back in Hartington visiting and we got together at Murray's house (?) You told me then that you had moved to Jackpot and I believe gave me a business card? Bob told me then to come out and visit. I have many fond memories of Hartington and those include you and Bob. Sincerely, David Levorson
