Memories - Posted by: Myrna Roach - Wheat Ridge, CO - XWife ? Jan 28, 2013

Bob as I knew him by was a very special man. I would love to share one of many special memories of him. When I was in the hospital, after having our baby, I had to stay in the hospital for six days. I was feeling kind of down. And Bob showed up with a little stuffed monkey with a diaper on. He even went so far as cutting a hole in the diaper. So the monkey' s tail could fit through. It made me laugh so hard I thought I would ripe out all my stitches. That's what I'll miss the most was Bob's humor. I am so sorry about your loss. At least I'll have my memories. He was a very kind and gentle man. May he rest in peace.

Cause of death: Prostate and bone cancer.
