    Uncle Bob, was not actually my uncle. However he was a very cool man, whom I used to “shoot the shit with” when I worked at the Gas station.
    Uncle Bob was one of those people who never hide themselves, I often argued with him about differences in views, but we would share a smoke and call it good, shake hands. To which I greatly respect you bob.
    You had a hell of a grin and you were a good man, you will be missed bob, and appreciate you now have peace my friend

    Bob used to spend a lot of his time at my house. I used to kid him on where he really lived. I was always telling him to leave his snowy or wet boots at the door, then while he was visiting I would fill them with snow or stuff them with various items, but he also found ways to tease me. I had not been able to see him recently, because of living in Kansas, but I did visit him while I was home one time, and as usual he was the same old Bob. He was true to himself and never was anything but Bob. He will be missed.
