With my deepest sympathy Celina Wilson, March 8, 2018 I grew up knowing Mr. Carey (Bob) and his family throughout my childhood. I will always consider them family, and my heart is heavy for their loss. Our thoughts and prayers are with all of you. Jeff Loving, March 7, 2018 Bob was there to help when he could. He bailed me out several times with car problems, tree problems and whatever else I needed. Our family and the Carey's grew up together from the time Dion and Kim were babies. He was a good family man. Bob was a part of my life for nearly 50 years and he will be missed. I have fond memories of him and Tripod riding the Golden Wing and him dressing as Santa to ride at Christmas time, and the neighborhood poker games. our families shared a lot of history together. Bless you Bob, rest in peace. Kay Morgan, March 7, 2018 We were privileged to have Bob move in as our next door neighbor in Highland Village, TX. Bob had a very interesting life and during extended periods of talking in the rocking chairs on the front lawn, he shared some of those stories. We will miss Bob, but our memories of him as our neighbor and his great family will not fade. We are praying for the family and are asking God for a special dose of love and blessing on his beautiful wife Carol. The Purvis Family, March 6, 2018
