Memories and Condolences

Bob was a friend I knew growing up, one of the older guys up at McVeigh Rec. He was always nice to me back in the day, maybe because our mother's worked together or maybe that was just Bob. Bob would always buy a pretzel from me or buy some of the President's Club tickets I sold for the Ascension Parish. I was a kid. If I wasn't selling, I was grubbing. If I asked him for a quarter to get a Pepsi, he'd give me a buck and say "get your buddy one too!"

Bob was just a good guy from the old neighborhood.

RIP Bob and Godspeed. God will be good to you my friend. Sorry I missed seeing you off.

Your pal,
Jack!

Aww, So sad, Bob was an old friend and anyone that knew him will have a thousand good stories to tell.
RIP Bob !
