    I have so many memories of Bob and Pal. Here is one. Me and my little brother Shane would visit Bob and Pal as we lived right down the street. Bob said if he ever got a trick or treater he would give them $20. So the next Halloween we went there and sure enough they gave us $20. I have never forgot that and it was probably 35 or 40 years ago.

    So sorry for your loss. Prayers and love for you all.

    George and Donna so sorry for your loss. You took great care of aunt pal. There are to many memories to list but I will name a few. One was Aunt Pal always welcomed everyone into her home no matter what, it was so much fun spending time with her. I remember our trip to cancuan,Mexico with Uncle Bob and Aunt Pal what a fun time we all had. I remember djing the Christmas Party where she lived in Allendale and we had Santa show up and she was all about sitting on Santa’s lap. She will be truly missed. God bless all your family.

    I am very sorry for your loss. Although the pain is great now, the Bible points us to a future time, when God will destroy death and it’s stings. “And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.” (Revelation 21:4) Death will be so far removed from mankind that it will not even be called to mind. As for those now sleeping in death, they will be brought back to life, and have the prospect of living forever in paradise on earth. (John 5:28,29)
