In this life we were so very blessed to have Bob and Ginny as our neighbors in Florida. We enjoyed our countless front porch chats with Bob about his adventures in this life. He was an inspiration and a joy to be around. His colorful life stories underscored the importance of embracing each day and living life to the fullest because you never know what tomorrow might bring. Bob was a gentle giant with a tender heart and a great blessing to all who had the honor of knowing him. Bob's great courage and strong faith that carried him through his final chapter was an inspiration to us all. Bob was so very loved and respected in this life and he will be deeply missed. God bless you dear friend... until we meet again!
