Cindy
So sorry to hear of Bob’s passing
He was one of the good guys
We had fun together as lineman
Although neither of us knew what we were getting into
But we knew we were friends
Hope to see you in the near future
With Love

Cindy & Bobby,
I was very saddened to hear of Bob’s passing.  As they often do, our own families and time have separated us in more recent years.  I have very fond memories, especially in my childhood and teens of spending time with all of you all.  Bobby, do you remember swimming in your pool early in the summer and the water being cold?  We hooked up a hose to the hot water heater in the garage and drained the whole thing to warm up the pool.  I fondly remember those good times and many more with you and your family.  Karen and I miss seeing Bob and Cindy regularly at our first job at Erbs.
Bob was a very kind man and giving of himself to others.  I wish I had known him better in these last few years.  The world has lost a good man.  Best of wishes, and healing to both of you and all who knew Bob.
Matthew Allen & Family.

With sympathy from M J Jarmon:
I offer my heartfelt condolences to Cindy and the Resch family and friends of Bob.  When death robs us of someone we love very much, it causes much sadness and grief.  Our loving heavenly Father , Jehovah (Psalm 83:18) gives us hope at Revelations 21: 4 says:  “And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore.” Isaiah 33:24 guarantees us: “And no resident will say “I am sick,” ever again.     May these promises from Jehovah God  bring you comfort. None of us are guaranteed tomorrow, but we are all guaranteed a resurrection.  (John 5:28, John 11:23-25) Again, the family is in my prayers and I offer my heartfelt condolences.
