I was so saddened to read of Bob’s Homegoing. I did not know he was so sick … it was a joy to get to work with Bob at IMOCO and to build a great friendship over those many years – and he always stayed in touch in the time that had followed his retirement. He truly loved the Lord and he loved his family … I rejoice that he is in Heaven with his Lord and that he is not suffering now. God’s blessings to his family. With my thoughts, prayers and deepest sympathy, Alton
