Pat, I am so sorry to hear of Bob's passing. He was always so kind and a true joy. His leadership and commitment to volunteering at Covenant were so deeply appreciated. The connection to Cadillac via a certain snow blower was a pleasant surprise. Praying that the memories of wonderful times together give you comfort during the coming days.

I remember all the good times we had in the neighborhood growing up together - baseball - tag at night - playing cards in our garage until late in the summer and catching lightning bugs.
Wayne was easy to talk with and knew almost every subject discussed.
He will be missed greatly as he was always a gentleman even at a young age to us.
Loved by the"Girls" across the street- Jeanne, Beverly, Karen and Denise.
