  • I never had the chance to meet Bob, but knowing you as I do, Lauri, and for most of our lives, I have no doubt that Bob had to be an amazing man for you to have been together for 40 years and how so blessed you both were to share such a deep love and such a beautiful family. All of you in your family, both sides of the family, are and will continue to be in my prayers. I wish I could do more, but being so many miles away keeps me from that..I hope you can feel the soft hug I send you. My family and I mourn with you..Sometimes there are just no words. Only to let you know how very much you are loved (and missed). I especially pray that the Lord wraps you in His loving arms and gives you His precious peace in the midst of this so difficult storm. I love you, dear friend.
    Rest in sweet peace, Robert. You were so obviously a great man, and one day in Heaven I pray to see you there and thank you for loving and taking wonderful care of my sweet childhood/life long friend. Rest in the sweet arms of the Savior, Bob..until we all meet again.
    In the love of Christ, Marie (Veilleux) Locke & Paul Locke, and grandson (we raise),Jonathan Locke.
