Still can’t believe you’re gone. Doesn’t feel like it’s been 7 years. So I hear Sandy is up there with you. I can just see the 2 of you, God has his hands filled with you 2. Miss you.
Continue to look down on Bob. Take care of him.
I know he has his mom with you as well. You guys continue to watch over Bob.
Love you

I can't believe it's been 3 years.
And almost a year later I lost my father to the same thing on June first.
I hope the two of you have met in heaven. Miss you both.
Steve, Bob is doing well and keeps us all in his heart. I'm so happy to see his posts. He keeps me smiling. He truly has helped me through yours and my fathers passing. Keep watching over him. Love to you.
