Judy and boys, I am truly sorry for the death of Bob, a wonderful husband and father. There are no words to express my sorrow over the pain you are all feeling. It is your faith and trust in God that will sustain you. Judy, you have been our friend for so many years, since I was in the third grade and you and Joan were in the fourth grade. So much of the fun and happy memories from my childhood are the times with you on your front porch and in your kitchen eating pizza. Always know how dear you are to me and always know I will be here to help you in any way I can. May Bob rest in the eternal peace of Christ.
