I'm sorry for your loss as no one can ever replace Bob but he will be dancing with his mom, Ruth, in heaven and praying for his family on earth.

Our thoughts are with you all Aunt Gloria, cousin Melinda and Heather and whole Wright and extended family. I will always remember Uncle Bob as a genuine, kind, caring, hard working man. Even though it was long ago, I do still have great memories tagging along with Uncle Bob around the farm and equipment. Great man, great family all. We miss and love you all and our thoughts and prayers go out to you.
