    Carol, as you know, Bob and I were great friends. I will miss him very,very much. I have had health problems that prevented me from coming to see Bob and I hate that I didn’t see him before this happened. My prayers are with you and all of the family. God is now in charge and may He bless the entire family.

      Carol, Bob was a great friend and boss…always fun,always fair. We had some great times together that I will always remember. He always made Margie feel like she was part of the program too. We got to have lunch with Bob and Andy a few weeks ago and Bob seemed to really enjoy himself. We talked about ole times and he laughed about them. This is really tough on you and the family and if there is ever anything I can do..please call. Love you guys….Ken & Margie.

    I am lucky to have known Bob as a boss, a mentor and most of all, a friend.

    As a young, green sales representative, Bob taught me and many others how to sell one-on-one by role playing and listening to buyer needs. Always moving forward, Bob led by example. And helped me and many others like me along the way.

    Jackie and I miss him very much, but his memory will continue to enhance and bless our lives.

    With love, Bill & Jackie Gregory
