Patti & Lee Alan, I will forever miss uncle Bob. He always made me laugh and me feel loved. I will always remember gathering at his gas station in Lawrence in the evenings. He was one of a kind.

To all the family ~ It is amazing at how small this world is when it comes to lives that your father (or grandfather) touched. Losing someone is never easy, losing them without being able to say the final farewell is harder yet. I hope it brings you comfort knowing how many are praying for your family!!! Matthew 5:4 Blessed are those who mourn. For THEY shall be comforted.

Love to all,
~Lisa Chamberlain
