I remember the first time Bob picked me up for choir practice. He drove his Alpha ? and wouldn't start until I connected my seat belt. That was the first seat belt I'd ever experienced. Soon, I got and installed a set in my car, I thought that was such a good idea.

John 13:34 A new commandment I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another.
This the verse I’ve always associated with Granddad because of conversations and lessons he taught me. It has always stuck with me and I think of him every time I hear this verse. I will miss him but always remember the life lessons and examples he passed on to me. He lived as an example of the man I always strive to be in this world.

I will never forget the encouragement that I received from Bob as he sang the tune of Amazing Grace with such joy! He loves Jesus and blessed me every time I met with him. I look forward to seeing Bob and Jesus face to face!
