Sue and Family, our deepest sympathy for the loss of Bob. We remember Bob's excitement at the Relay For Life, his joy with his community in Florida and showing visitors around the area. His devotion to his students was unmatched. We remember how much he loved sharing the vegetables from his garden. However, most of all we remember his devotion to his family, and how proud he was of each one of you. You will be greatly missed, dear friend. Love and Prayers. Gaby and Lee Conner, Evans, GA
