I was deeply saddened to hear of Bob’s passing. The last time I had the privilege of seeing him and Doris was September last year when we all met in Lincolnton for a luncheon. In all honesty I feel we’ve lost another family member having had ties with this family since childhood. I know the family is hurting and it’s my prayer God will wrap his loving arms around you all and give you peace beyond understanding.
