Bob, your kind spirit will be missed. The love and kindness that is your spirit will live on in the hearts and lives of so many. Your life was way to short, yet lived full and completely. You were a great man, a wonderful cousin and a friend I have cherished. Rest in peace with your Lord and your loved ones... Rit Sessink
