Out Deepest and most heartfelt condolences to each one of Bob’s family and friends. I was honored to meet him and touched by his kindness and graciousness. Along with the generosity of his time. I remember coming to visit my family in Oklahoma, a country girl now residing in the throes of Long Island, NewYork. Shani, my sweet sister-in-law, knew I loved horses. I don’t know how it even fully transpired, but Bob loaded up his horses and brought them out to my parent’s farm so my daughter, Julia and I could ride. That was also the first time my husband, Andrew had ever been on a horse. Bob did this like it was no big deal. I just remember how much it meant to us. He may have th...ought nothing of his kindness and the giving of his time but I never forgot it. I saw a man who had a giving heart that was so deep and I enjoyed every oppurtunity I had to talk to him. In life you meet people who really make an impression by bringing joy to others in such a selfless way with their thoughtfulness. He will be missed greatly and my heart goes out to his children (his own and those who were still his own even though he didn’t cradle them from their first breath but had the privilege of being their father thereafter)his grandchildren and great grandbaby. May your heart find comfort and be embraced by your Heavenly Father. With deepest sympathy, Bekah, Andrew, Julia and EthanRead more
