Uncle Bob was extra special to me and my family since he was my dads only sibling.
My dad Lawrence went home with His Lord back in 1958. Bob helped me understand my identity as a person and as a believer. I was close to his three children. His son Jim was the best man in my wedding. I remember visiting their home when he had a beauty shop.

Sincere sympathy to you Kay and family. What a wonderful neighbor Bob was to have and such an inspiration. Never have I known anyone who worked so hard and never ever would quit or ask for help. He always told me "Never STOP Moving" - "you have to get up everyday no matter how much you hurt or how sore you are" I still can hear him saying this to me. He has been a neighbor of ours for over 35 years and we're gonna miss seeing him out and about working in the yard. God Bless you Bob and may you rest now. You have earned it.

First and foremost my sincerest sympathies to the entire family on this passing of Uncle Bob as he was known to me despite him not even being really an Uncle to me and/or my family. He was a wonderful person who despite not having seen him or some of his family in quite a few years. I truly hope that his family realizes how incredibly wonderful he was. I will lastly say it would be wonderful to potentially see some of you in the family perhaps if our schedules and time allows for such an opportunity to meet with you all after some years between any visits.
