    My condolences to the family. Treasure your memories of your Bob. May the “God of all comfort” embrace you with peace and hope as you look forward to the time when he fulfills what he has promised, that death, sorrow, and pain will be no more. (2 Corinthians 1:3,4; Revelation 21:4)

    Condolences to the family from a neighbor of 10 years. My name is Joan and my brother Greg have talked to Bob on several occasions. I worked at Cub Foods/ShopnSave which is the grocery store that Bob shopped at. The year we moved in next door and I was mowing the front yard. Bob came over and introduced himself. He was a super nice man and will be missed. I am disappointed that I missed his funeral, because I was behind on reading the Journal Star. Please let me know if I can help in anyway. Just knock at my door.
