    I always remember for his birthday one year, Bob asked for shotgun shells. I never seen so many boxes of shotgun shells...except at an ammunition store! You will be missed by all your family, friends and those who knew you sir.

    Bub, you will be missed by me, we have been up and down the road, after Sunday School we would load up and go drag racing, dirt track racing, but the really the best times was our Lake and camping days, which you really enjoyed and talk about it also.
