ìA heart broken and crushed spirit, O God, you will not reject.î (Psalm 51:17b) Iím sorry for your loss; may God provide you and your family with peace and comfort during this difficult time.

To the family of Robert Allen Bock – I have a longstanding friendship with his son Chris and his beautiful wife Debbi. I also have a special bond with his precious Hunter that started when “Hunts” was just days old. I am rather certain Mr. Bock knew how much Chris admired and loved him, but Debbi often talked about how he and Mrs. Bock warmly accepted her into the family – immediately. This touched her deeply. He was spoken of often in Chris and Debbi’s California home and Hunter knew many things about his grandpa that Mr. Bock may have never told him. Chris and Debbi made certain Hunter understood his grandpa’s courage and character, and his love of his country. Something they never had to mention was grandpa’s sacrificial love for his family. A love that genuine is obvious and lives on forever. I have no doubt that his love and legacy will continue through all of you. Much love to you, and many prayers to your family for healing.

In His grip, Myra, David and Christopher Hamilton
