Not sure what to say?

Sorry for your loss. The King's were always in my parents store, Gibbs Gifts. Always smiling. That's how they will be remembered.

I already find myself missing Bob. He and Mariana were such a kind and gracious pair. I'll never forget the lifelong kindness and friendship they gave me. Rest in peace Bob.

Whenever I would think of or see Mr. King, I would smile because that is what was always on his face. What a sweet, kind and gentle man! My thoughts and prayers are with his family. Sara

We are so sorry foe your loss. Your father was truly a fine, fine man in every since of the word. He was always so friendly and kind, a real southern gentleman. They don't come any better than your father.

We will miss a true gentleman with a wonderful sense of humor and twinkling blue eyes. Rest in peace, Bob.

Offering our deepest condolences during this difficult time.
