As I read my favorite book, HAVE A LITTLE FAITH, the Rabi said, "remember the memories" to his loving wife. We are all men of God. Bob is with God now, safe and sound. He will not be forgotten because he will be missed every day. Bev, Paige, and family, you are in my thoughts and prayers. I am here for you.

Bev and Family,

Although I hadn't seen you for years, you always remained in my heart and I hold the memories close. May Bob rest in peace safe in the arms of God and Bev as you stumble,crawl and walk through your grieving process may you hold onto your memories and love shared and take it one day at a time.
In Loving Memory of Bob:
"The Reunion Heart"
Since Heaven has become your home I sometimes feel I'm so alone; and though we now are far apart you hold a big piece of my heart. I never knew how much I'd grieve when it was time for you to leave or just how much my heart would ache from that one fragment you would take. God lets this tender hole remain reminding me we’ll meet again and one day all the pain will cease when he restores this missing piece. He’ll turn to joy my every tear with thoughts of you I hold so dear and they’ll become my special way to treasure our reunion day.
