The first time I met Bob was in sixth grade. The last time I saw him was at our class reunion in Des Moines.

My prayers and thoughts go out to his family and friends wishing comfort and peace at this difficult time.

God bless his soul. We graduated together from Roosevelt High School in Des Moines. You know how we all run with different folks within our class, I didn't necessarily run with Bob, but Ken Near and Dick Smith are a couple of names that come to mind as friends of his that he may have. It looks like he had a good life. I will offer up my prayers. God bless, Terry Canady, Emigrant, Montana.
