    Marianne, Kim, Linda, and your entire family. I am sorry for your loss. I remember Bob always had a smile on his face. I still have memories of our visit to Mattoon Illinois, and going to the lake. I also remember him in his chair with his dog on his lap (Chihuahua), I believe. Sending my deepest sympathy and Prayers.

    Marianne and Family,
    So sorry for your loss. I’ve always had a soft spot in my heart for Bob as he helped me so much to serve the Lord regardless of my disability. For that I will always be grateful and remember him as a Christian brother. God encourages us to reach beyond where we have been to where we’re yet to be. You’re in my thoughts and prayers, May God Bless, protect and comfort you in this time of need and sorrow.
    In Christian love,
    Jim McLaughlin
