    I cannot express how lucky I feel to have been a part of Uncle Bob's life. He was a role model for me and a reminder of the man I aim to be. He will be missed.

    Bertie, There aren't any words to tell you how much we will all miss Uncle Bob. You know we love you and will be here for you. Your marriage has been one that we all have been amazed by. There had to be a lot of love to go for so many years. Now, he is out of pain and still watching down on you. Love. Bren & Dixon Little Girl & _____

    Uncle Bob, Now that you have gone to the best box seats in God’s stadium. I hope what I’ve heard about the place is true that….. In heaven you never have to get up early. In heaven you never get sick. In heaven you never fall. In heaven you can hear everything. (If you choose too?) In heaven you never have to go buy beer. In heaven you never have to ‘Open the Bar” In heaven you never loose your lighter and always have a match. In heaven you never have ants or mosquito’s. In heaven you never have unwanted company. In heaven you never have too many visitors all at one time. In heaven you never have to watch the “ instant replay.” In heaven you never have the wrong answer on “Jeopardy”. In heaven you never have to mow the lawn or do yard work. In heaven you never are late for anything. In heaven you never miss the shot in darts. In heaven you never forget the words to any song. In heaven you never need a watch. In heaven you never have to leave. In heaven you will always have Aunt Birdie’s love. Thank you very much for all the great memories. Love Donna Abbott Say “Hello” to Donald, Jamie and Uncle “J”.

    Uncle Bob was a great guy. Some of my fondest memories are of summers at the trailer. Crabs, beer, family and good times. I'm sure there will be a new schedule up in heaven. I'll miss you.
