He was a good man and a good Dad. He will always be in my heart. I hope he's found peace and Gaylena and the rest of our family. Hope he watches over me and knows I love him very much and miss him terribly. I love you Dad

Bob was a great friend to me and I hope he considered me a good friend. My hope and wish is that he has found Peace and Galena in Heaven. I will miss our talks and the times we spent hunting together in Switzerland County. My thoughts and prayers are with him and his family.
