We were so saddened by the news of Uncle Bob's passing.  As difficult as it must be having just lost your mom (and his wife), there must be some comfort in knowing that they are together again!  You have our deepest sympathy, and prayers to your family.  He will certainly be missed.

Our prayers are with you all as you go through this difficult time.  We are sure Bob was a great guy because we know his life is reflected in yours.  May God grant you peace and comfort in the coming days as you celebrate not only a life well lived, but the promise of an everlasting life together someday.  God is good.
