Even though Bob started out as an English teacher, we doubt that he understands the meaning of the phrase “eternal rest”. Saint Peter probably greeted him with “Thank God you're here!” and invited him to double-check the rosters of Heaven, allowing him to continue his role of service to God, his country, his community, and everyone he encounters.
Thank you Bob for showing all of us how to take the high road, maintain our integrity, deal with life's challenges, and choose kindness and charity to move forward with our lives.
There are no words to express how much we will miss you, especially your laughter. See you again, dear friend.
