I worked with Bob many years ago. He was a kind man and all who knew him liked him. His memory lives on because of this.
May God's Holy Spirit give you, his family, peace.

I'm so grateful I had the opportunity to get to know Mr. Bob. He was my post office buddy and it was there our friendship began and I looked forward to our daily chats. We had a wonderful time at his birthday party, but nothing compared to the one he'll have this year...surrounded by dearly departed friends and family...but most importantly the presence of Jesus Christ. May precious memories sustain friends and family of Mr. Bob in your time of grief. You'll be in my thoughts and prayers.

Mr. Bob was such a sweet man. Seeing Mr. Bob and Miss Opal together made my heart sing.

Bob was a dear friend and a great guy. During the 20 years or so that he and my mother, Opal Kelly, were companions, Bob was always fun to be around, and he will be missed.

Bob was a loved companion to my mother-in-law Miss Opal Kelly for twenty years before her death last year. He was loved by our family and will be missed.

I am sorry to hear of your loss. When we lose someone in death, the pain, the grief and the feeling of helplessness can seem unbearable. The Bible promise; "God is close to the brokenhearted; He saves those who are crushed in spirit." (Psalm 34;18) I hope this message offers comfort in your time of sadness.
