  1. Condolences to the Freeburg family. Throw all your burdens on God in prayer now and in the days ahead, and the Bible promises that you will receive “the peace of God.” Philippians 4:6 & 7. Our prayers are with you.

  2. I met Bob when I joined McKesson Corp Security 1980. Bob was already one of the old timers and a true professional. I will
    remember him as an outstanding investigator and an exceptional interviewer. He was always willing to pitch in and work as hard or harder than anyone the team. Under stress he had a way of appearing laid-back. He was a gentleman. I will never forget him and extend my condolences to his family.
