I just wanted to express my sympathy for the loss of you loved one. God gives us help in dealing with our loss. Psalms 55;:22 reminds us to "throw your burden on Jehovah and he will sustain you"

We will always remember Bob and the times we spent. My first job out of HS was working with Bob operating the scales for M@J Paving at the quarry. God Bless your family Bob
