I am so sorry to hear of Bob’s passing. You both were like second parents to me and gave me an outlet through horses that helped me avoid the pitfalls many young people experience growing up who have no direction. Little did we know at the time that this outlet would facilitate the introduction to my wife Michele whom I have been married to going on 41 years – an introduction that ultimately would not have happened without the two of you. The so many wonderful memories we shared will always be with me. Please know that despite not being there you and Bob have always been and will always be in my thoughts and prayers.

Diane I am sorry that Bob is gone but I assume the Lord figured it was his time & you would be fine to carry on in this earthly life on your own. He's knows you're a strong lady. Take care.... May he R.I.P somewhere over HIS rainbow ridge!
