    Bob was my stepfather and grandfather to my 2 children for a number of years. I remember his kindness and wonderful sense of humor. Although there has been little contact with him because of circumstances, my daughter’s still refer to him as grandpa Bob. You were a beautiful person and will always remain in our hearts
