I still think of Dad often. I wish that I knew the last time I saw him would be the last time. I would have said so much. Mike is doing good and I see him often. I know he feels a tremendous loss and is struggling with it all. Sleep softly dad, until we meet again.

To all the family...I know Bob is comfortable now and reaping his well deserved rewards. I have known Bob for many years and found him to be a good and honest businessman.

I have many fond memories of Bob. One in particular was of a gathering at the lake that involved a crappie catching contest. Another involved an accident between a limousine and a deer!
Peace to Bob and to all of his family.

I have known Bob for nearly 35 years. Many have known him even longer. I feel sure none had anything negative to say about Bob. What a record. Bob loved a good time, friends, family, his employees, karaoke, golf- especially member/guest tournaments at Colonial - the Braves, The Masters, fast pitch softball, pawn shops, parties at his house that lasted a long time, and I could go on. Bob loved life and always drew a crowd of friends and others, once he met them, who wanted him for a friend. I was always amazed how many good people looked for and surrounded Bob over the years. He cared deeply about his friends and never had to say it because it just showed. His easy laughter, caring style, competitive spirit and never wishing to say anything that would hurt someone were but a few of his core values. How does one deal with the loss of a best friend? No doubt, Bob had many, like me, who considered him their best friend as he spread his caring self to so very many over the years.

So many memories come flooding back as I think of my Uncle Bobby. He was such a kind and giving person and made such an impact on my life. I always knew he would be there for me if I ever needed him for any reason at all and I will forever be grateful. He was adored by so many people and I have always had the upmost respect for him. I know I as well as so many people feel this way. His passing has certainly created a void in my life. I will always love you Uncle Bobby.

I feel very fortunate to have had Bob as a great friend. His spirit and love for life carried over onto all of us. He was a special person in my life who we loved and will never be forgotten. His thoughtfulness to others was expressed daily in the way he lived. I can remember when I had a serious health issue, one of the first persons to come by house and offer encouragement was Bob. I will forever miss his companionship. I am glad I was fortunate to experience life with Bob Allen. May God be with you Betty and all your family.

I had known Bob for 35 years and never knew a man that enjoyed himself as much as he had done. Bob was a good golfer and his putter back in the day was a good has it had to be. I will miss him and I'm sure many others as well. Lanny
