Elta and Family,
We just read about your loss of Bob and wanted you to know how much we loved Bob, as well as you.
You are in our thoughts and prayers and hope to see you soon when we travel to Lubbock.

What a man! I am disappointed that I didn't know him. However, knowing his family seems to be close to knowing him. Beautifully written obituary, Jenness. Your family is in our prayers.
The world lost two great pianists this week, both Texans namely Van Cliburn and Bob Rouse! I'll never forget his and Elta's support of me and my dream of becoming a professional singer. Music was such a great part of his life and my favorite memories of him center around listening to his booming baritone voice filling his house as he accompanied himself on the piano. Godspeed Brother Rouse. The Heavenly Choir just gained a beautiful singing soul.
Brother Rouse made a great contribution to the teaching staff while he worked with Lubbock Christian
I had the privilege of working with Dr. Rouse in the Department of Economics in the 70's. Even though I was just a student assistant, he made me feel special and valued. Blessings to his family at this time.
