Oh how I am going to miss my Monday morning phone call from Mr. Bob. Mr. Bob was a worker even though he was retired, he loved to drive cars from auctions to the car lot for me. He loved to ride down to Jacksonville or Albany with a group of us and just share stories of his family that he loved so dearly!! At his age, he even got himself a new I phone that he was showing off to us about 2 months ago. I hate that I missed his call on Monday, but he left me voicemail making sure I didn't neglect to call him if I ever needed his help. Mr. Bob I will miss you dearly. You were truly a man of compassion, helpfulness & commitment to your family. Praying for my friend Beth and the rest of the family!! I will feel lost without Mr. Bob, as he has been committed to driving for me for the past 4 years like none other!!!
