  2. Dear Gladys and Family,

    We were saddened to learn of Bob’s passing. I workded with Bob for fifteen years and enjoyed many retiree breakfasts with him. He was a joy to be around and always kept me up to date on many computer e-mails. Please know that his priorities were his Lord, family and country. He always spoke fondly of you, his daughters and grandchildren. We will miss him and pray the Lord will comfort all of you during these difficult times.

    Sincerely,

    Sam & Jan Luntsford
