This Obituary Has One Condolence

  1. Bob was like family to my husband Chris and me. I was his host home provider for nine years and did my best to give him a good diet, an exercise routine (which he was not happy about) and lots of outdoor activities. Bob looked out for me as I looked out for him, letting me know if the tires on my car were low and needed some air as one of many examples. I missed him after I ended my host home position but still got to see him at his apartment and then at his new host home provider’s home. Now I will look to the heavens and tell Bob, “It’s time to take your daily walk.” Then I will see that look he always gave me when he went out the front door letting me know he didn’t really like this walking routine and I will smile. Rest In Peace Bob. Nancy Thomason
