My Uncle Bob

My uncle Bob (on left) just passed recently and we are headed to his memorial. Our family is precious and I look forward to seeing many loved ones. His daughter, my cousin and dear precious friend, has remained close to me over the years. We laugh and giggle all the time, we talk about God, our famlies, crafts, decorating...and have the best time when we are together.
My uncle Bob had a rich and beautiful voice. I believe Heaven's choir (which I want to be in one day!) will be singing a little more beautifully with him in the choir!

Uncle Bob and my aunt Toni (she's the feisty and beautiful one next to him) were married over 50 years....wow! That says a great deal about two people that are married that long!

What a precious man of God, he had memorized many 'chapters' of the Bible. Great to be around. He was a great father and husband.
We will miss you dearly!



I don't know where this scripture is but it says "Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of one of His saints."

Sorry to hear of your loss. I have only one uncle and one aunt left on this earth and I know it will be such a strange feeling when they are gone, even though, I too believe I will see my loved ones again in heaven.

Thank you for making a tribute to my father on your blog spot. It was joy to see you at the memorial and visit for a bit. That visit made my heart yearn for more time with you, Kyle and Whitney. I am going to do all I can to get to see you at the next upcoming family event- a happier type of celebration. Tootles! your cousin, Ralaine
