Sending sympathy and prayers for Bob's family. I met Bob in grade school at Goshen. I most recently saw him when he was doing some plumbing work for me. I brought up some pictures of our classes. He was a good guy and he will be missed.

Kristen (and family), This is so sad. I'm sorry to hear of your loss. Bob and I were classmates and, Kristen, I met you at a couple of reunions at Larry Gasser's house. Its been several years now that I saw you and Bob at Larry's and he was struggling with his health then. May he rest in peace and may you feel God's presences and comfort during this time of loss.
