    What a beautiful Man...I thank God for allowing me to know him for the small few years I did. He was a man of little "nos" if his flock of sheep needed anything he was there to help and give the guidance to make things better. Pastor Bob will always be in my heart. He worked his life studying the word and all those he touched now feel lost. Bob is still here to help us. though is is gone in the flesh I know he will continue to guide his flock in the spirit. He is now happy ...He is with the Lord.

    Thank you, Pastor Bob, for all that you did in making me the person that God wanted me to be. I thank you for the classes you taught me, the wisdom you shared with me when I was just starting out and the prayers for me. There will never be another "Pastor Bob", you are one of a kind. Godspeed, my friend, your work here is done, now you can rest.
