We were very saddened to find out about Bob's sudden passing. He was a wonderful next-door neighbor to our dad for many years. After our dad went to be with the Lord las year, Bob reached out to us and showed great kindness that we will never forget. May God bless you and bring you comfort at this very sad time.
