  1. So sorry for your family. Bob was a very nice man. He was always smiling with me and laughing. He had kind eyes and I always enjoyed talking to him. I know you all are going to miss him terribly, but the separation is only temporary. He will be waiting to show each of you around heaven and introduce you to everyone (especially Jesus) when the Father calls you home. I love you all so much. My thoughts and prayers are with you.
