|Let the memory of Bob be with us forever|
"Time has gone by so fast. Some days I am brought back to a memory and I smile to myself. Then that familiar tug on my heart returns and I realize it will only ever be a memory.
What I wouldn't give to go back to a few years ago to listen to one of your stories, or one of those God awful jokes where your eyes twinkled when you told the punch line. Or just to hear that laugh coming from the back room...feels like a lifetime ago.
"Miss you. Still. Think of you every, single, day.♡"
"Bob...Well here it is September 1st again. It has been 18 months since that cold snowy March 1st day you left us. It doesn't seem possible. I thought by now it would get easier to accept you're gone, but I am coming to the conclusion that this feeling I am living with will never go away. Good days and bad days but you are always a part of every day. I miss you so much and as always I love you now and forever."
"Happy Birthday in Heaven my friend - till we meet again."
"Hello again my ole friend.I was just in here browsing around and found you again,Happy Birthday Bob.See you on the other side"
"Bob, Wishing you a Happy Birthday and sending my love. Missing you so much, it doesn't seem to get any easier without you. Hoping you are golfing today with all your buddies up in heaven and and enjoying your day. I love and miss you so very very much...... Happy Birthday!!!"
"I come to this site and I just start smiling..That shit-eatin grin should make everybody smile..I bet you and Ronnie are having quite a chat.Fly high my friend,fly high."
"I couldn't bring myself to come here on the anniversery, so I came today and left my facebook tribute in your photos.
I can still hear your laugh if I close my eyes...
"Bob, even though one year has gone by I can still picture your smile and quick wit. Rest in Peace our dear friend"
"Bob....I can't believe it has been a whole year since you physically left us but you NEVER leave my thoughts and prayers. Life just isn't the same without you here. I have to keep telling myself you are in a better place and not suffering any more. Although my heart is broken I know where the other pieces are - with you. Be at peace and be happy and know how very much I love and miss you and that you are always in my thoughts and prayers....."
"Hey Bets Here. The calendar says one year but it seems like yesterday. Many things have changed here but I felt that angel on my shoulder as I worked my way through one day at a time. You cannot imagine how much those of us who loved you miss you. You have left such a void. But we would be selfish to wish you back to suffer. That being said, be happy, golf in the clouds and keep track of us down here. We still need you and your spirit among us."
"Finally got all of my stuff up in my new office. Wouldn't be complete without you at work, so your picture now hangs on the board above the kids photos.
What I wouldn't give to tell you all about it.
You wouldn't believe the amount of real estate I do these days. Closed over 400 files last year. Still wish I was "your real estate gal" though. I'd love to have one of our late afternoon conversations after a long day, before going home.
You: we'll try it again tomorrow
Me: see you in the morning
You: god willing and the creeks don't rise... ♡
Still can't say it with a dry eye...
"Merry Christmas. Hope your first one in Heaven was perfect. The kids had a perfect day. You would get such a kick out of them these days, especially Brooklyn. I can still remember how I would have to bring her in for a while and I would be out front working and you would be in the back playing with her, having more fun than she was! Miss those days.
Your in my heart today, Kay and Lindsay."
"Saw someone today that looked so much like you, in a nice suit no less. Stopped me in my tracks. Brought me down memory lane....
There was "frost on the old pumpkin" yesterday morning. I said it out loud and giggled. Every Cold fall morning you walked into the office saying that. I can still see you pretend to shiver with that black leather coat on.
"I'm "busier than a one arm paper hanger" at work.
The "Bobisms" never get old.
"Still find myself telling all of our stories to people at work. Just stopping by to say hi. Still miss you..."
"It was a horrible rainy day today. Rained right through lunch and I wanted nothing to do with walking out in it to get a sandwich. Reminded me of the time Jimmy made us one of his delicious treats. Raspberry crumble cake of some sort. It was pouring rain, neither of us Wanted to go out in the rain, so we grabbed some spoons and dug in. Almost ate the whole thing. Wish I could have lunch with you again. Or maybe even drive to Deposit and get root beer floats one last time.
By all of my posts everyone is going to start getting the impression that we never really worked. Truth be told, we worked hard, but you never wasted an opportunity to make it fun.
"Happy birthday dad <3. I hope you spent it golfing in the clouds, winning at heaven's casino and watching the daily show while eating your birthday non-cake. We missed you so much down here today, and every day."
"Happy Birthday in Heaven. I still remember your birthday two years ago. I hadn't seen you in a few weeks, and was almost 20 weeks pregnant with Savannah.
Me: Hey Stranger! Happy Birthday!!!
Him: Wow, your getting bigger
Me: I take it back.
"Bob...Today is your birthday. It is your first in heaven. I am wishing you a birthday filled with so much love. I miss you so much. You are forever in my heart. I will love you always. Happy Birthday! Love always and forever and ever.............K"
"In honor of today's beautiful weather.
You: Its so nice out there.
Me: I know.
You: I don't want to work today.
Me: Me either.
You: That's it. Lets go home.
And so we did.
Miss you every day."
"I had been feeling like I hadn't been getting any signs from your lately. Then I was preparing a deed and it was dated 6-17-13. That was the last time I saw you before the accident, and also your birthday. Thought it was coincidence, then I walked outside and saw an empty nicorette box. It was just what I needed. I hope you have an endless supply up there. I know how the icebreaker cubes never really did quite work out. I loved you for trying though! Miss you every day."
"I saw a flower today and a flash back ran through my mind. I remembered our trip to NYC for a closing many years ago. You knew the City so well and I was amazed because I had not been there since I was little girl. You drove around to show me a few sights and the weather was so warm. It was the end of April. I know that because I had to be back for a family get together. The closing went well and we headed down the side walk to the car when you grabbed my arm and said, "Wait just a minute!" You ran around the corner and when you came back you had a beautiful bouquet of flowers. Before I could ask you said "Do you think Kay will like these?" Of course my reply was something like "Are you kidding?" We got in the car and out of the City we went back to our roots, small town America. But one flower and one little flash today made me remember how special you were and how much you loved your family. How you always just naturally did something nice for someone every day of your short life. Miss You. (Hey) Bets"
"We were saddened to hear of Bob's passing. We first met him when we bought our House in Fishs Eddy almost 30 years ago and he became our friend. We will never forget his quick wit and smile. Rest in Peace Bob."
"Helen Lester told me today that Bob had passed away. I'm so sorry Kay...my heart goes out to you and your daughter.
Linda Snyder Koons"
"For always being in my corner. For backing me up in any situation based on my word alone. For trusting in me. For believing in me. For teaching me so much of what I use everyday now. For always remembering the best jokes. For never remembering anything but those damn jokes. For the endless expressions I still use everyday. For my diet pepsi every morning. For my reese fast break every afternoon. For being there the day I got married. For not only putting up with, but for being so understanding of my horrible pregnancies that made me miss more days than I actually came to work. For letting me take longer lunches when I didnt feel well. For visiting me when my babies were born. For never making me put those babies on the road in bad weather. For every birthday, holiday and administrative assistants day you never forgot. For everything you did for everyone else. For all of the clients you never charged. For standing up with people who had noone. For endless hours of doing it for free and never asking for anything in return. For teaching me one of the most valuable lessons, that you get farther by being patient and kind, even when people dont deserve it. For ALWAYs seeing the good in people. For never making it feel like work. For treating me like one of your own. For the endless memories that flood my mind everyday.
Wish everyone knew who I did. So much more than you ever got credit for. So much to me....
I hope your finally at peace. I know you will forever be "Walking in Memphis". Ill see you again someday "God willing and the creeks dont rise" rest easy...
A week later and it hasn't gotten any easier. What can I say, I just miss you."

"Dear Kay & Lindsay-Sorry to hear of your loss. I think back on the 20yrs. I worked with Bob, he was a good lawyer who helped everyone, a most generous person, had a great sense of humor, I could still hear his laugh. He was very special and I will miss him very much. May he RIP.
"We miss his jokes and stories on Monday nights. Bob's smile could light up a room. His razor sharp mind and knowledge of the law in the defense of his clients was something to see. We are proud to say we knew him. Our prayers to Kay and Lindsey.
