Am certainly going to miss sharing dinner and beer with Bob. So many wonderful conversations shared with Linda and Bob over a couple years. Bob, you're a good fellow. I'll lift many brews in your honor! It was always relaxing chatting and swinging on the porch swing. Thank you for sharing.

Good bye Uncle Bob.
When I was younger, I think you kind of understood what I was going thru and the problems I had. But you never judged me or made me feel weird about it. You were just a cool uncle.Then, when I saw you later in life, you treated me as a friend and as an adult, and I felt a connection with you. I hope you enjoyed your life, and passed a happy man.
Give a big hug to my mom and dad, and all the others who went before you, as I know, in my heart, you are now in heaven.
Good bye Uncle Bob.

Bob to me while in the hospital (thinking I was Linda) -- "Hello, Darlin', I've been waitin' on you all night long." Miss you and your sense of humor, Bob!

It has been an honor to know and love Bob as our neighbor and friend. We have so many great memories of our special times together with Bob and Linda. They always opened their home and hearts to us . Bob will be sadly missed here on earth but we know that he is now with the Lord and we shall see him again in eternity.

I did not really know Bob but he meant a lot to my daughter-in-law Ashley. He was always very quiet and respectful when I was around him . I want to thank him for his service and wish Linda the best! Linda let me know if I can help you in any way. God bless!

Bob to dad (Guy) as a little boy: "Can I have a nickel?" "I'll owe it back to you." Uncle Bob - my favorite . Loved him. Thank you for serving our country!
