I didn't know Bob very well but he was a high school classmate. So sorry for your loss. My dad died in a car accident when I was 10. I can feel your emptiness. God be with you.
My condolence to you Angie i waited on you guys on Sundays at applebees. he will be missed very very much your dad was an amazing person with an awesome heart!!!
Bob was a good man. He credited his wife for making him a good man. I don't believe that. Bob was good by nature. He deserves a lot of credit for his character.
I just loved cooking a big steak for Bob he always appreciated it so much, he said he couldn't boil water, he will be dearly missed at our holiday dinners, and our cookouts Sparky Frye
