  1. I Love you Uncle Bob!! I will always miss you my dear sweet Uncle… I have so many fond memories of what a special man you’ve been throughout my life and the life of my children.

    I pray you are dancing, laughing and looking into the face of God, being reunited with all those who have gone before you. What a wonderful celebration in Heaven must be going on.

    To all my cousins I pray for God to give you peace and to comfort you in your pain and heartbreak. May he keep you close to His heart during this Very sad time. My heart breaks as well and hope you know how much I loved your Daddy, my Uncle so much.

    With love in my heart,

    Karla Porter
