Bobbie and family, so sorry to hear Bob passed away. Sending hugs and prayers and remembering all the fun we used to have at your parents house! They were both great people!

Dear cousins, your Father will be missed on this side of eternity. He was a precious uncle to all of his nieces and nephews.
But the joy that occurred on the other side the moment he crossed over is beyond our imagination. You are all in our prayers.
With love, Tom and Glorie Magrum
