Sudie & Family,

I am so sorry for your loss. Bob was a good man and always pleasant to be around. I loved hearing him talk with that distinct voice of his and always loved smelling his pipe. He was so faithful to check on my dad and so kind to the family when it came to getting flowers.
You all will be in my thoughts and prayers.
