my dear father. i miss you more than words can express. i long to hear your voice. the pain that i feel is the double edged sword of loving you so much. i stand front center stage with you leading the "way".
My heart is heavy today and the Ballard Family will be in my thoughts and prayers. He was a brilliant man full of information and a joy to be around. I know he will be truly missed by all who knew him.
Our prayers and thoughts are with you.
Love to you,
Judy, Kim and Jill, Billye and I have said our prayers for you in this time of loss and grief. We have all had our share of it and we know that only the Lord can give you the peace you seek. Bobby was always a delight of our reunions and we miss him

Judy, Kim and Jill,
There are no words to be spoken now that will ease the hurt you are feeling. Know that our prayer and thoughts are with you. After working with Bobby (Ballard as we called him), for many years at Alpha, I can say He was always there to listen or lend a hand in time of need. He was also able to keep a smile on your face, sometimes when I didn't feel or want to smile. He was a good friend and will be missed.
May God's Grace and confort be with each of you in your time of sorrow and through the days and years to come.
Richard and Sarah Moore
To Judy, Kim, and Jill,
Bob was a great Dad and a great cousin. We laughed and joked everytime we would get together and he would bring the old tools to the picnic for all of the younger generation to see. He and I both loved Uncle Stewart and Uncle Lewis and it was hard on both of us when we lost them. Now it is going to be hard for all of us that we now have lost him.
It is the good memories and funny tales that will give us the strength to go forward.
We love you all and you know that we are here for you.
Our thoughts and prayers are with you in your time of grief. May your memories bring you comfort.
Judy, Kim and Jill--I am sending my deepest sympathy to your family. We will all miss Bobby very much--
Judy, Kim and Jill
My thoughts and prayers are with you in your time of grief.
Judy, Kim and Jill, my heart goes out to you. Losing a loved one is never an easy thing to do, but I pray that God will give all of you strength to endure, faith to carry on and that each of you will find comfort in your loving memories of Bobby.
With love and prayers,

Judy, Kim and Jill,
Words can not express my sympathy for your loss. Bob guieded several young men through good and bad time during his time at AOC. He was always great to work for and a good man to have known. I will be traveling during the arrangements doing the job he started me in. My heart and thoughts will be with you all during this time.
