A very special thank you to the staff of Wellbrooke of Kokomo. They truly went above and beyond in their care of Bob during the last three years.
Bob was a loving husband, dad, grandpa and friend. His faith in the Lord carried him through many difficult situations. All those who knew him were truly lucky to know such a kind and loving soul. He will be missed more than words can express.
