I had the pleasure of being B.B.B.'s (Big Brother Bob's) baby sister for over 42 years. He told me stories of how he would get up with me in the middle of the night and rock me back to sleep so Mom could sleep.

I was a child last time I saw Bob. My parents were friends of Bob senior and Nelma. They were all good people and I have often thought all of them. I was looking up Bob and Nelma for my mother when I found this. Our prayers and love are with the rest of the family. I ne er thought about being a professional musician until I met the Hysell family. We wish you all many blessings and happiness.

I grew up with Bob on the farm north of Clio. Was a classmate, and was one of those friends you never talked to for years but when you did it was just like yesterday. A great person many good memories. RIP Bob

Joyce and Family,

We were so sorry to hear of Bob's passing. We didn't know him well, but last week when we met him at his uncle's family and when he presented the flag, it was evident how much he loved his country and his family. Our thoughts and prayers are with you at this very difficult time.
