Thinking of Leona and Bob's dear family. I only had the chance to visit with Bob a few times, but was always struck with the sense of a caring, wonderful man! There are never words to express the depth of sadness when a loved one passes on. May you find the comfort and peace through God now and always. Rest in Peace Bob. Blessings to you all of you!

Keeping all of you in our thoughts and prayers. I enjoyed times visiting with Bob when he came to Mansfield for meat. Bob was always happy to talk about his family! ❤
