  1. Bob was a beautiful talented addition to the Bass family. She married my brother when I was six years old. I absolutely adored Jo and Bob. Bob’s beautiful smile and sense of humor will be missed. We are blessed to know Heaven is her home and we will meet again. Our deepest sympathies to Arlis, Anita, and Karla and their families for the loss of their mother and grandmother.
