Linda, Please know that I am here for you in any way that is helpful to you. My heart and prayers and continually with you, Evan and your and Bobby's families. I will never forget Bobby's sweet countenance, kindness, continual curiosity about the world and other people,quick wit and sardonic sense of humor. It was always wonderful to see the passion and deep love between the two of you as an inspiration to us all. Your eyes would always light up when you spoke of one another and your pride in and love for Evan as well. As you said...a life well lived...we will all miss him deeply and carry him in our heart.

Linda, Julie and I cannot begin to express our sympathies to you at Bob's passing. You are in our prayers. Bob was a tremendous mentor to me at Pacific Life. He was always there with a positive thought and you never had to worry about what he said. It was proven and heartfelt and he always made smile with his little jokes. Blessings to you and your son.

Linda, I am in shock about Bob's passing. I'll always remember first meeting him in Geology class at SMU. Thought he was so cute! Then Mickey and Bob became Fraternity brothers and we all became friends. Mickey and I will keep you and your family in our prayers. We have many special memories of Bob we will always keep in our heart.
