Nelda and family, words cannot express how sorry we are that Bob is gone. He has been a source of laughter for all of us! I will be ever grateful for the support both of you gave to us. I regret that Ryan did not get to meet Uncle Bob, but he knows who and how special Uncle Bob is to us. I will always remember the conversations with Bob about being a "woman of the 90's" and "still waiting on that package with Ryan in it." We will miss Bob greatly. Love to all of you...
