  1. Melaney, Thoughts, Prayers and Friendship to you and your family….

  2. Thank you Bob for the many laughs we shared over the years. Your absence at the department is greatly missed.

    May god take your hand and lead you home to the house of the lord.

  3. So very sorry to read of Bob’s death. I have not talked to him for 3 or 4 months and was shocked when I read the paper this morning. It is truly a shame he didn’t get to enjoy his retirement. Hopefully his beloved dogs will find a loving home.

  4. Perhaps they are not the stars, but rather openings in Heaven where the love of our lost ones pours through and shines down upon us to let us know they are happy. ~Author Unknown
