Godspeed ~ until we meet again For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven: a time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up what is planted; a time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up; a time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance; a time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing; ...

Love Rob Biesel Rob Biesel, February 17, 2020 I work for John Osborn, Bob's long time friend and CPA. Every time I saw Bob's caller ID on our phone I was quick to pick up. He was always lighthearted, funny, kind and encouraging. After we had solved the problem or figured out the answer to his question or need, he would say "That's just what I needed, now go ahead and take the rest of the day off!:-)". He loved his family and friends SO much. He was generous to a fault. I'm sure last Tuesday he heard, "Well done, good and faithful servant". See you soon, my friend.
