I'm so thankful for Bro. Bob. One of my favorite memories is of how he and Alvey would let Melody, Amy and I ride with them up to church. We always felt welcomed and we got to hear great stories! He also was the one who introduced me to The Easters and The Villines🎶 What a wonderful legacy he has left❤️
