It was a privilege and an honor to share hours of friendship with Bob for a few years. Bob was a special person whose caring for others often went unnoticed. I believe he is at total peace finally and home with The Lord. Best wishes and comfort to th family he Lord so much.

Bob (Shoe) and I were not always friends in high school. We had a few moments of what might be called intense fellowship, but in the end we worked it out and I was glad to call him a friend. I was looking to forward to seeing him and Joe next year at the reunion, but now both are gone. I pray that God will bring healing and peace to his family and friends who loved him.
