Bro. Bob also know as uncle Bob to our kids Kayla and Jacob, will always hold a special place in our hearts!!! He loved them and would call them his kids! He showered them with love and special gifts! Our boy Jacob sleeps with one of his quilts, it's his favorite blanket! The kids bought him a dancing Santa Claus one year for Christmas, he got a kick out of it! He would always let them play it each time we visited. He loved his gum and popcorn! We'll surely miss him but take joy in knowing that he made it home, no pain, no suffering all is peace and joy! Love and prayers to all the family and friends.
