    Uncle Bob will be missed greatly by many people. I remember as a kid staying with him & Aunt Sue during a summer. He always made me smile. Now he can go see Aunt Sue, Papa, Grandma & his brother & sisters that are in Heaven waiting for him. May he rest in peace until we all see each other again. He will be missed but forever in our Hearts. I Love You Uncle Bob!!

    Our thoughts and prayers are with your family at this most difficult time. Bobby was such a kind man. We will always remember him as a deacon at Silver Lake Baptist Church and I still have the Electrulux that we bought from him. He will be missed.
