Rest easy Uncle Bob. Hopefully you’re having a round of golf with Wally, Grandpop and my dad Bill. Love from Sean, Craig, and Bonnie.

Well the day has come when you get home to the Father's House. I'm sure you got right in. We always talked about why we got put together. I always said that I was put there to straighten you out. You said maybe it was the other way around. We definitely filled a void in both of our lives. I can't do much more for you, but you still can do something for me. You are up in Heaven so you can be a voice in my head to keep me on the right path. Well I love and miss you and only wish I could have been with you till the end.

Extremely intriguing online journal. A lot of web journals I see nowadays don't generally give anything that I'm keen on, however I'm most definitely inspired by this one. Recently felt that I would post and let you know. Monthly Dripfeed

I am so sorry to hear f Bob's passing. I knew him when he lived on Fleetwood Street. He was best friends with my brother Don Tillman.
