    I did’nt know Bob personally, but from what I have heard about him, he will be greatly missed. I am Dewain’s house cleaner, and he talks about Bob alot and i wanted to tell your family how sorry i am for your loss.

    Sherry and boys. It was my honor to be associated with Bobby for a number of years in his positions at MIRMA. I’m confident he has the organization in great shape for a continued achievement of his dreams and ambitions for this outstanding pool. He, and you, have been in my constant thoughts and prayers ever since he told me of his condition back in August in VT. And, you will remain in them as you each seek to fulfill his dreams and ambitions for you, which were indeed even greater than those for MIRMA.

  27. Ed and Donna Zahn on February 25, 2010 at 2:49 pm

    Sherry and Family-I probably new Bob the shortest of his friends-but he left a lasting impression on me. We shared a room while in Boone County Hospital in late October for just 24 hours.During that short time I grasped his love of his God-family-frinds and of life that left an impression of life everyone should have. We extend our loving prayers to each of you.

  28. Deb and Terry Stidham on February 25, 2010 at 3:31 pm

    We received a call from our mutual friend Sherry while out of the country. We prayed daily for Bobby and your family. We continue to do so for you, dear Sherry. Bobby’s peace and commitment were evident when we met him personally for the first time. We are grateful for having met him and look forward to meeting him again when it is clear to see that Christ has made all things new.

  29. Julie Asche on February 25, 2010 at 4:34 pm

    Sherry, David and Nate, Our hearts go out to you for the loss of a very special person. Bobby will be missed by all of us. He was such an inspiration to Cody and he looked to him for alot of guidance. We will cherrish the memories that have been created thru the years.
    Love, Todd, Julie, Tyler and Cody

    Dear Sherry and boys, We read about Bob’s death in the paper and are so sorry for your loss of him. It was always so neat to see him and you walking, running about the neighborhood and playing ball with the boys. It seems all too young to be gone from here, but it’s never too early to be with the Lord. Our prayers are with you. JoAnn and Lyle Burkey join us in sending our love and prayers. Beth and Jeff Wallman
