As a stone sends out ripples in a pond when dropped, and these ripples flow out in many directions, so Bob's love for Christ flowed outward and across so many lives. His life and his love touched so many people. A friend once said, "Bob not only made you want to be a better person; Bob made you want to be a better Christian." Another friends said, "When Bob walked into a room, he brought the sunshine!" His glow was from the inside and flowed outward. Bob's love for the Lord was strong. He had a happy soul!
