Dear Mike and family, We offer our most sincere condolences at the loss of your father. My husband Craig knew him too, from their work together at Craig's company Jones Water Supply. Craig remembers him as a really nice man who worked with a number of different clients. We are both so sorry to hear of him gone. May sharing your happy memories of him be a solace to you all.

Bonnie and family,

I'm so sorry to hear about Bob, first because we are all family friends and secondly I was
able to see and respect him as a top notch businessman and worker. You can be proud of his accomplishments. He is at peace and without pain. My thoughts are with you through the sadness.
Love to you all, Val
