A Loved ones passing is never easy but we know that Bob’s soul is now at peace and I know it never seems fair but death is often the greatest relief for the suffering.
If I can provide you comfort, know our thoughts and love are with you.
Love Doris and Ronnie
I am so sorry that we were not able to spend a lot of time with Bob. You can tell the goodness of a man’s heart by the respect that he receives from his wife, children, and grandchildren. He was treasured by his family! He was a happy man. What more can you ask for from this life. I am sure that he will be treasured in heaven as well.
