Bob now is your time to rest. You was a wonderful husband to my Sister, Loving father and a great Grandfather. You are so loved by us all and will be missed.

I love when I called my Sister and you always said I know this is you Betty. I will miss that when I call my Sister Lora. But now your Journey on Earth is done. And you can rest now. And know you did a great job through out your life.

With lots of love and great you came into all of our lives.

Love, Betty & Rey Coronel
