  1. Although I never met Bob, I am a friend of Chris’ and Brian’s. My heart hurts for Chris, Craig and Cheryl. Losing a parent is incredibly tough, I know. I am so glad that Bob was in Bryan this week. He received lots of love and attention from everyone including the fur babies. There is nothing like being at home and surrounded by loved ones, especially now. Rest In Peace, Bob. And Godspeed.

  2. We will really miss Bobby. He was a quiet and gentle fellow. We always loved to be with Bobby and Jan. Jan was a first cousin to my sister and I. God bless them all.
