Becky, So sorry to hear about Robert. I did enjoy his last visit when he came out last time. I still talk about the hunts we had with you and Robert. Missouri will always hold a special place in my heart because of you and Robert. I know he will be missed greatly.

Was so sorry to hear about Robert, he built our new home (with help) in 2000, and was a good friend. He will be missed so very much. We are currently in Yellowstone and won't be able to be back for services, but would love to be there to hug everyone. Remember he is in a better place, with my Bob, Blue, Francis, etc.! Please give hugs to Joan, Bill and Philip especially!!
