I was very saddened to hear about Mr. Bob's passing. He was a great neighbor and friend of our family. I'll miss seeing him when I leave Mom's in the afternoon sitting on his back deck. I would always look over to see him sitting there and he would throw up his hand and give us a big wave. God bless you all.

I'm sorry to hear about Bob's passing. We worked in the same building when I was in Whiteville with UCB; Bob could always be counted on for a funny joke or one-liner. Also attended some great cook-outs at his house. I offer my condolences to his family.

Dear Sharon, Marsha and family, I am so sad to hear about the passing of your dad. He was always a hoot. I just loved him and your mom! I still see Jeffrey and the two of you coming up to my house after school and weekends and all the fun we had together. If I had know about visitation last night, I would have come. I was at another visitation in Tabor, but would have come to it after I left that one. If there is anything I can do for you, please let me know. I will keep all of you in my prayers. Love ya'll! Rhonda
