It was a privilege to know Bob. He was a good man with a kind heart! I'm blessed to have given him two beautiful granddaughters, his son Robert, their daddy.  He loved with all he had and would give his shirt of his back to anyone! My heart is aching for the family and I know that no words I say will help ease the pain. My thoughts and prayers go out to the family.
