To Bobs family,
Our deepest sympathy to all of you. Both Bob and Sherry were some of the most wonderful folks.
I cannot attend your services due to previous commitments.....I will be there in thought.
When I lives up there, Bob was always willing to give me a hand fixing things....Always had that warm smile on his face.
I will always have fond memories of the both of them.
We send our hugs, prayers
Russell and Christine
