I was married to the baby of the family, Atlas, and will miss Bob very much. He was truly a kind and careing soul. Pleas do not take my absence and my 3 sons Chris Wade and John as a lack of love for Bob because each of us truly loved him in our own way. So sad and sorry for all his family and loved ones.
Sorry for your loss of Bob and may God give your whole family comfort in this time.
