    I found a letter Bob sent me in the eighties when I was a pen pal with him. He mentioned the love he still had for his ex-wife and children – his son, named after him and his daughter Crystal (who were 5 and 4 at the time of the letter). I am so sorry for your loss – when I googled his name I thought I might find out where he is now – I did not expect to have missed him by a relatively short time. I lost my mother in Sep of ‘18, and my heart goes out to Bob Jr. and Crystal. This may seem strange and I’m not even sure you’ll see this after almost a year but I wanted to reach out and let you know that Bob came across as a gentle soul who found the Lord and forgiveness in his heart.
