My sincere sympathy Greg and family at this time of loss. Bob was a great man and will be remembered for all the pictures he made for his church and when I worked with him at the Water Co. He is now at peace with Donna and family. 36

So sorry for your loss, Greg. I will always have fond memories of your Dad, his artwork and the pleasure of having both of your parents on trips with the bank group. Prayers for you, Linda and your family at this difficult time. God bless!
