What a treasure to have known and loved cousin Bob. The memories he shared were priceless as was the twinkle in his eyes when he told jokes. One of the best measures of a man is the friends he has. Bob has the most wonderful friends who truly loved him and were there for him all the way to the end of this life. God bless them all!
