    Thanks for all of the fun memories you and grandma made for Jessica and I. I’ll never forget all of the road trips you took us on with the little Pepe Le Pew beanie baby on the dashboard. I hope you have all of the scratch off lottery tickets possible and enjoy your time in Heaven being with grandma again. I love you and miss you already. Rest in peace.

  2. Shari Franks says:

    I enjoyed 45+ years of friendship with Bob and Kathy starting with the kids school activities and ending with our monthly Senior Citizens group. Bob was a devoted husband, a proud father and grandfather. Celebrating the life of a good man and mourning his passing.
