Thanks for the kind words. Dad made a graceful exit late yesterday afternoon. He had been in the hospital for a week, low on strength with a high temperature. The past two days he slept most of the time, but regained consciousness often enough to get hugs from the ladies and handshakes from Will, Brock, and me. Dad's grip was still very strong. We were all able to express our love, thanks, and good-byes to him, but were unable to hear his very weak response. He was a born-again Christian, and is now in a much better place. We will miss him, but celebrate the 91 and a half years of his long productive life. He had a very positive influence on many friends and neighbors. Thank you, everyone.

I have had the pleasure of having Bob here at the ranch twice. What a great gentleman. He was close to the age of my father and they hit it off great.
Bob lived to an age where he saw many changes and saw his family grow and be successful. If we all could be so fortunate to see our grandkids grow up and produce such a wonderful bunch of Great grand babies. :D
It is a sad time as any parent will be missed but it must also be a celebration of a life well lived.

I don't post often, but I always look for and enjoy your pictures, Soapweed. It is wonderful to see pictures of your family and to see how your dad was still involved in the ranch. I am sure you know that you are blessed to have had him with you so long. My condolences to you and your family. He will be missed, but you know you will see him again.
