Vicki, Jeff and family, We are so sorry for your loss. May God comfort you and bring you peace as you reflect upon the life of Bob, and the many accomplishments achieved through his lifetime. He was a wonderful man with many gifts, the most impactful was his love for his Lord Jesus Christ, and his heart to invest in others for Christ's sake. I wish we could attend his memorial service, but you will be in our thoughts and prayers Wednesday.

Kevin and Kim Boyer

Vicki, we are so sorry for your loss. Gary always thought so much of Bob. When Gary first started at the Bus Barn Bob was the first person to introduce himself and welcome him to Transportation. We also always thought Bob was one of the nicest people we have ever known. We are sending prayers for comfort and peace to you and your family.

Dixie & Gary Moss

So very sorry, Vicki. I enjoyed working with you both at LPS Transportation. You two have had such a beautiful life together. Hugs and prayers to you.
