Jim,
Sorry to hear about your dad. Many good memories of him. He seemed to have a sunny disposition, and always time to talk for a bit.
His good values shaped us as children to be the adults we are today.

I did not know Robert (Bob), but he must have been a wonderful man to have a son like Joe. My deepest sympathies to Joe and the rest of the Terrian famiy for your loss.

I think Bob was a great example of what God had in mind when He made man in His image to be His friend and companion.

Joe and family, my most heartfelt condolences to you on the passing of your Dad. Your parents reminded me so much of my in-laws,who I loved dearly. Mom was the quiet one, while Dad was the "people person"...And so it was with your folks, in my eyes. He didn't come down to Hospitality Sundays, but he usually showed up somewhere along the line--always asking if there was something he could do to help. I ALWAYSYS breathed a sigh of relief when I saw him, 'cause I knew I could talk him into taking the leftovers around the room to get rid of them, which he GLADLY did because he could go around and talk to EVERYBODY! And he was PERSUASIVE TOO--NEVER had leftovers after he went around and schmoozed the crowd. I will truly miss him, he ALWAYS had bits of wit and wisdom to pass on--he knew that my daughter Jamie was also diabetic, and he always asked how she was doing. When you have your Dad's memorial service, be SURE to have his hat displayed nearby--that was his TRADEMARK! I LOVED YOUR FOLKS LIKE FAMILY, can't wait for the reunion! GOD BLESS!❤
