Very sorry for your loss Mrs.Bratton. We had many good memories of Bob coming into the tire shop and being a loyal customer.
He was a good role model for other farmers in the Delta area . God has gained a good faithful man .

Dear Jan & family,
We were so sorry to hear Bob passed away. Indeed he was a kind and caring man. Bob and you would sit in the back row in early church every Sunday. He used his God given talent in being a farmer and raising tomatoes over the years. May God's love be with you now and in the days to come.
