Mike and Lonnie - so sorry to hear of your dad's passing. No matter what, you are never ready, but take heart in the fact he and your mom are back together in the hands of our Lord. Thoughts and prayers with you and your families. Take care and be safe.

Bob was a wonderfriend to the Creager family. I have many wonderful memories of the time our families spent together. He was a great friend to my dad. He will be missed. Janet Creager Alger
