    Pam and family — Sorry to hear about the passing of your father. He was a very special person. I didn’t know him for a long period of time, but knew him as a kind and gentle person. You should be glad to have had a father like Bob. I can’t say enough about him.

    I was so sorry to hear about the passing of your dad. He was a very special person and loved by many. He was about the most easy going person I have ever met. He always had a smile on his face. I never met your mother but I know there is a special reunion now. Rest in peace Bob.

    Love and prayers
