While my heart is so very heavy for you Sherolyn,
My heart also rejoices at the visual of Bob in perfect health, in perfect splendor, and finally face to face with our God that he so faithfully loved and served!!
His voice through the mic from the back of the church
Was always such the most angelic sound and he will be truly missed.
