Super sad to hear that Uncle Bob has passed away. My folks were keeping me updated as things progressed. When things like this happen, it makes hard to be living so far away. I'll always remember Uncle Bob, his commitment to the church, YMI and youth of Richmond.

I offer my sincerest condolences to everyone affected by his passing and will be keeping everyone in my thoughts and prayers.
