Mary and family,
I am so sorry for your loss. As a new young lawyer in Perry County Bob was very kind to me and always treated me with respect. I became acquainted with your family and in turn learned to have the greatest respect for all of you. I will ask God to wrap his loving arms around you at this difficult time.

Mr Dodd was my attorney 46 years ago and I will never forget him. He was so kind to me at a very rough time in my life. God bless his soul.

The Dodd family were so good to me in a very difficult time of my childhood. I cherish the memories with this family and how Bob and Mary opened their home and hearts to me. I can see Bob now discussing politics with Julie in Heaven. All my love to all of you!

Bobby was not only a great lawyer, but always a gentleman. He was fair, reasonable ( not always common in that profession ) , pleasant, and compassionate. His clients loved him.
His very accomplished children are a testament to his parenting skills.
He will be truly missed.
