Condolence & Memory Journal

Bob. You are going to be missed ever so much not only by me but all that knew you. I'm going to miss those I love you. I have all the little pieces of papers that you would write those 3 words one. Good bye my love. You are now in God's hands no longer in mine. Love you always and I will keep that promise I made as long as I'm here.

Rest in Peace, Cousin Bob. As we watched the service today from the remote broadcast, we sincerely regreted not being there - but circumstances are what they are. I'm glad we were able to get down to San Antonio in 2015 - your memory and many achievements will live on and on. See you on the other side. - Kevin & Joan Arburn
