Our family was saddened to read about the passing of Bob. No doubt he leaves behind many fond memories that can brighten your day when you are thinking of him. As we look forward to the time when we are reunited again with our loved ones, think about what you would like to say and how big the hugs will be. My family is encouraged reading about this hope at jw dot org (hope). May the God of comfort bless and guide your whole family during this difficult time and in the days to come.
