    So sorry to hear about Bob’s passing. He was our realtor for the first home we bought in 1969 when we were a young couple who didn’t know anything about owning a home. We talked to him several times through the years and he was always helpful when we had any real estate question. Our prayer are with the family. Bob, you will be missed.

    The words to a song comes to mind at this time, “Rest Easy Dear Friend, your time of work is done.” Bob was a deligent worker and a wonderful long time friend. He will be remembered.
