Bob, you were a solid guy with a heart of gold. Tasha and Sam were blessed to have you apart of their life. You will be missed by many. Fly high.
Tasha and Sam, I'm sorry for your loss. You have my number if you ever need me. You should know I'm here for you.

Love you bobby. I have so many memories of us when we were kids on 100th and you use to come visit. You was such an awesome cousin. You will be missed dearly. I always imagined you living forever never thought this day would come and so quickly. I really wished I would have stopped by Sunday when you wanted me too. But I figured I had all summer too. That just goes to show me how precious time is here on earth and how things can change in a blink of an eye. I love you cuz always and forever. Gone but never will I forget you.
