Hey papa it has been a while since i talk to you i think i am doing okay, still have my moments (i show up at work at least 2 times a week with my eyes glued shut) they must think i'm some sort of weirdo but they don't know it is because i cry myself to sleep so often. I MISS YOU mom is not doing so well i wonder how long she will hold on. Are you watching over her?Laci made the allstars in cheerleading she is going to be in the thanksgiving macy's day parade. We are all so proud, I must say thought papa she cries all the time for you, i, don't know if it is just hormones being a teenager, but i think her loss for you has killed some of her spirit.Any way we all miss you and love you, and if jesus and god will allow you will you please be with her for her time in New York, I know she will be wishing you were here to watch her.But since you are not could you please watch over her?I love you dad, Laurie

Hey Papa, I think writing to you like this will help me have a little peace of mind. I miss you. I cannot believe it has been more than two hears since I last heard your voice. I have so much to tell you, I don't even know where to start. I guess I'll start with Nana. She is doing OK, could be a lot better though. She has colitis and has lost a bunch of weight. Also, she broke both of her legs this year. I felt so bad because I couldn't help take care of her. Everything is really messy with the family- like always. Since you died everybody is asking Nana for money and making her feel bad when she can't help them. It's really dumb because they aren't even making an effort to appreciate what little time they get to spend with her. I'll talk about me now- I'm pretty sure you are always around Nana so you already know what is going on there. I'm getting married! His name is Montana and you would really like him. He likes to hunt and fish- the two main requirements of any guy you would approve of. My ring is beautiful, the prongs that hold the diamond look like tulip petals. Aunt Andi is going to take our wedding pictures, I am so excited. We are going to have the wedding on Skyline Drive in Arkansas. It is so beautiful down there. From the lodge on the mountain you can see for miles in every direction. I am also almost done with school, almost. LOL (This stands for laugh out loud, not lots of love. People always confuse the two) I am working for the school newspaper! It is called The Northeastern and I am the Layout Editor- that means I am responsible for how the paper looks. It's fun, but so much work. The last time I saw you you came into my room to tell me by before you left for work the morning I flew back to Oklahoma. That was the summer you, Nana and I were singing Taylor Swift in the car together. I miss you so much. Every time I think about what happened I cry. I feel like you weren't supposed to go yet. I wanted you to walk me down the aisle at my wedding and hold my babies at the hospital like you held me the day I was born . Please take care of Nana since I live so far away I really worry about her. I love you so much. Tell Darci hello for me- she was by best friend and she decided to go live closer to you a couple months after you went to heaven.

I am deeply saddened by Bob's tragic passing. My deepest sympathies and condolences go out to his family. Bob and I grew up together in Winters and he was a great friend. Those wonderful memories will stay with me forever. My thoughts are with his family and he will be truly missed.
Wally Sellers Aug 15 2009 12:00 AM
With deepest sympathy, Bob was born the same year I was. We went to school in Winters together in the 5th grade. I'm confident Bob is resting in peace today. He was a great long distance friend and will be missed. Sorry for not giving my personal condolence to family at the grave site as I was pressed for time. Please accept my sympathy during this tragic moment. Sincerely, Bennie Rosales

Sandi and family- Bob was a great man and a true professional. He displayed compassion & integrity. I was honored to have known and worked with him. You are in my thoughts and prayers.
Terry Cates Aug 12 2009 12:00 AM
There are no words to express how sorry I am for the loss of Bob to your family. He was one of Gods greatest gifts to me for having to been able to know him and be friends with him. My deepest sympathies to you all.
