    I don’t know if there are really many words of comfort that can be given at this time. Having been in your position all I can say is I am thankful for my belief in God our Eternal Father and for the knowledge that He loves each of us. I know as we leave this earthly existence that we can be reunited with our loved ones. I feel so certain that Dennis met Uncle Bob with open arms and they had a most wonderful reunion. The veil between heaven and earth is thin and Bob will always be with you in your heart and watch over you. Sending you all my love Pam

    As a young girl I admired Uncle Bob’s service to our country with serving in Korea and multiple tours in Vietnan . His gentle nature and making time to write me while over sea and to talk to me in person. I admired his gentle nature with everything. He will take a part of the heart of anyone whom has known him,but I believe God has a special place for him with mom and dad, grandma and pap Ford and all the ones who have went to the perfect place God has instore for us. May God Bless each and everyone of his friends and family with the peace of knowing he was loved by us all,but mostly a son of God. love and prays for the loss of this precious life,but trust he is smiling today in the arms of God. love and prays Linda & Edward [Tom] Nutter
