To my extended family. May the Lord bless you all. My love and prayers are with you constantly. My thoughts are continuous. I know the Lord tenderly holds the entire family in his bosom. May the Lord strengthen and encourage each of you daily is my prayer. Rest Papa Bob. And I heard a voice from heaven saying, Write this down: Blessed are those who die in the Lord from now on. Yes, says the Spirit, they are blessed indeed, for they will rest from their hard work; for their good deeds follow them!

To the Scott family you all are in my thoughts and prayers. Growing up on Hanley was a true blessing because of people like the Scotts. Mr. Scott was always one to great me with a smile and always willing to lend a helping hand to my family and anyone who needed him.
God saw fit that it was his time to put on his wings. Job well done thy good and faithful servant
