Kim, Matt, and Shae, I am sooo sorry for your loss. I can't even begin to imagine what you are going through. I remember the first time I met Bob he was helping at Matt's house and he was just so friendly. I keep hearing how he helped so many people in so many ways. I wish I could have gotten to know him better. I hope you all find comfort in the many great memories you have and with the knowledge that he touched so many people. We will continue to pray for all of you. Love, Emily W.

My brother-in-law, Bob, was a great guy. Always a gentleman, which is a dying breed. He was one of my husband, Greggs best buddies. Our loss is heavens gain. To Kim, Matt and especially Shae, know that you all now have your own Guardian Angel. He will watch out for you just like my 2 Dads watch out for me every day! I love you all very much and I am praying for your tragic loss constantly. God Bless Dawn

Matt, Shae, and Aunt Kim: There are no words to describe how truly sorry I am for your loss. Uncle Bob was a great man. Like Matt and I talked about briefly the other day, he had a way of bringing out the best in people. Matt told me how Bob was a great coach. He told me about how whenever Bob had a player who had trouble swinging the bat (or any other fundamental issue that needed corrected), he had a bag of tricks to help fix any problem. Many of the kids' parents wanted their kid playing for Bob, because they knew he would help build them up. He also was good with his hands. He taught Matt how to install and finish drywall. I'll never forget him being over there at Matt's place almost every day, helping turn that house into a home. Any time I spoke to the man, he was always as friendly as could be. He always gave me a warm greeting, accompanied with a friendly smile. This world needs more people like him. Needless to say, the world lost a great man. My heart and my prayers go out to his family.
