To Bob's family,
I am already missing Bob and his teasing at work.  I was always late with meds, (even when I wasn't) and he always said he was going to put me out in the cold!  No matter what, he gave me and everyone a smile.  He was a blessing to us.

Dear Family,
I will truly miss my friend Bob.  We always joked around when I saw him in Payne and was so happy he decided to come to Antwerp.  He liked to tell me he could raise his leg high enough if he needed to give me a kick in the you know where.  He was loved by all.

My sympathy to the family. Mount Calvary Women's group just had a BINGO party with the residents a couple weeks ago. Noticed this time Bob needed help. Won't be the same next time without Bob. Loved to tease him and he could take it.

Dear Mary Jo, Bruce and families....we were saddened to learn of Bob's death.  He didn't know a stranger and will be missed by all of us who had the good fortune of knowing him throughout the years. Each time I visited him, be it at Payne, Antwerp or Paulding I left feeling that I got more out of our visit than he did!  An inspiration to me that's for sure!

He will be fondly remembered. With our sympathy, Jim and Vicki Hooker, Mesa, Arizona
