Guestbook

Thinking about you tonight, Granddad. We are missing you something awful. Gardening season is upon us and it's extra hard this year because we know you won't be over at your garden. You won't be here to discuss tators, green beans, corn or tomatoes. I'll be finding that concrete pig we discussed and I'll be putting it in my garden to remember you by, just like you wanted. Give Meggie a kiss for me. I love you.

Carol and family, was so very sad to hear about this. Our prayers and thoughts are with all of you. May you dwell on the good times and memories you had with Bob. He is at peace and with his Lord and those who have gone before him. I know he will be missed. Love you all, sending hugs! Connie and John Luke

Bob was such a special man and we will miss him dearly. I am especially thankful to he and Carol for how they always treated our son like one of the other grandchildren, as if he were their own. Thank you so very much for your Godly heritage and example.
