My dad was my hero, through and through! I was SO blessed to have the precious parents I had!!! Mom went to be with the Lord at only 58 years old. Both of my parents were just so very kind, loving, caring and present for us. We never doubted their love for us. They pointed us toward the Lord, took us to church, showed respect to everyone, and demonstrated honesty and care at all times! I will forever love them both!!

Bob, You have been a great example for me. I loved going to your Sunday School class and learning about the Bible. You worked for the Lord until the very end. If I could be that lucky. Thank you for brining Betty. We love her so as well.

A great person has left us. Uncle Bobby was always ready to share a story, a smile and a laugh whenever we saw him. One example of his quite sharing was the appearance of flowers at relatives' graves in Fort Worth during the Christmas season. We knew Uncle Bobby had been there. The story we most remember was the time all the uncles and aunts came to our home for a BBQ. Dad had made a picnic table and was using it for the first time. All the brothers sat on one side and their wifes on the other. All the brothers got up at one time and the picnic table turned over, dumping food and wives together. That was a great source of laughs for Bobby for many years. Uncle Bobby you are missed already! Gene and Rosemary Rattan
