Dearest Cookie, Ben, Bo and Kansas -

Please accept our deepest sympathy in the passing of Bob. We have some great memories of Bob, and his fun loving ability to always make you laugh. We have never forgotten the time he was working at Ken Wilson Ford, and took an ambulance on a test drive up to Christine and Buck's house. We still laugh about that day. Treasure your memories, and know that you will be together again someday.

We are very sorry that we cannot make the services today. We really would have liked to have been there. You will be in our thoughts and prayers in the coming days.

Bill and Paulette Buchanan

Dear Family, I am so sorry to hear about the loss of your Dear loved one. Our loving Creator never planned for death to be part of his original plan. There is such a loving scripture found at Revelation 21: 3&4 which reads: With that I heard a loud voice from the throne say " Look! The tent of God is with mankind and he will reside with them, And they will be his people. And God himself will be with them. And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be any more. The Former things things have passed away" I hope these words help you find comfort and also give you hope for our near future.

I would like to express condolences in the loss of your dear loved one. The bible gives us hope of seeing them again in the promised resurrection according to scriptures such as [John 5:28-29] and [Acts 24:15]. We find further hope in [Isaiah 25:8] which says that Jehovah God will swallow up death forever. [Revelations 21:3-5] says in part that God will wipe out every tear from our eyes and death will be no more. I hope these scriptures will be of some comfort. With Deep Sympathy.
