Dear Cousin,
Although I did not know Bob well, I can't imagine a more loving person for you to have spent the last 15 years. I'm so glad you found each other and I know that both your lives were enriched by your marriage. My love and prayers to you. I'll see you soon.

Love and prayers are with you, Mary. So sad to hear of Bob's passing but know he is at peace in his heavenly home. Such a gentle spirit. Always made me smile to see him lovingly assist you during the children's sermons at FUMC by carefully placing the chair for you each time. We have missed your presence but know that you have been a kind and loving caregiver to Bob over the years and especially over the last months in which you were not able to get out with him.
