Thinking of you folks down there Bob. Don't feel bad about the times you wished you did just be happy for the times you really did and there where likely a lot more of them than you realize if you think back.
Later Bob

Hello Bob,
I am sorry for your loss. Makes no sense to lose a loved one early like this. I pray that you can all be comforted. As one door closes, another one opens. That holds true for the family too. Mike D.

I am sorry bob ny about your loss.

I think talking to our children and grandchildren is a lost art these days. It seems to have been lost some generations back. I cannot understand how so many are growing up these days with no idea about the cost of freedom and the responsibility we each have to do everything in our power to keep it.

I agree we need to pass down the wisdom we have acquired to the younger ones. Wisdom about alcohol, drugs, morals, responsible gun ownership, voting, etc. They surely are not being taught wisdom in school; it is our responsibility. If we do not care enough to teach them; it is our fault if they never learn, passing the buck to the schools, church and media is just an excuse for not doing what we should do.

Sorry to hear this. Teach your kids about drinking and driving and also teach them to take the keys away from a friend if they have had too much. Can be the hardest thing in the world but it must be done. My condolences.

Bob; I am so sorry to here that. Drunk Drivers are one of the things that get me so upset! We have lost so many good people because of there bad desisions to drive after drinking. I think if Bob had talked about that instead of guns he would have got a lot more good responses. Hug her Daughter she will need a lot of love. Sincerly, Mark H.

You have my deepest sympathy for your loss.

As others have mentioned, you can make a difference in the life of your granddaughter's little girl. Tell her about her mom. Tell her stories about her mom. Let her know that her mom loved her and didn't leave her because she wanted to leave. If you can tell her stories about her mother, it will help keep her mom alive in her heart.

It's certainly not the same thing, of course, but both of my parents are gone, and that's how I keep them alive in my heart with stories.

With condolences,
