Sorry for your loss. I enjoyed talking to Bob when we worked together at Sparton's. I would talk to him when my mother was at Flora Garden Care Center too. My prayers go out to you, at this time.
The loss of a parent is never easy but our memories help with the pain. Your Dad was such a sweet man, always patient and kind when we delivered meals to him.
Robert was a gentleman from the old school. He was always very pleasant to work with. My condolences to the family.

I will continue to pray for you all.
