    I remember growing up and Bob always bringing fuel to the farm and he was always a very nice man. I was looking on the funeral home’s website and seen his obituary. I’m so sorry to see this. The one thing I do now is share hope for the future. The bible promises a time here on earth when there will be a resurrection. Psalms 37:29 says the righteous themeslves will possess the earth and he will reside forever upon it…. What happy times lay ahead for us.
