  • Ole’ Man Bob. Gonna miss my father-in-law very much. Both he and Gerri accepted me as a member of their family ever since I had married his daughter Melody Conn. Even after she passed away from cancer in 2008, they kept me as there son-in-law and thus have kept close since. Bob, Gerri and I would talk just about every Saturday morning. Every spring Bob and I would visit the grave site in Damascus, Virginia and talk about the good old days. I will miss Bob and our talks very very much. I know you are with your daughter right now and that was the one thing you would say every time we talked. That you enjoyed life here on earth but come the day you go home to heaven, you were most looking forward to seeing your daughter once again. 🙂
