Dobro Bob We Love You

Updated on October 27, 2017

We could cry a river,

But it won’t bring you back.

I can tell you this for certain,

You are one big class act.


Not many can fill your shoes,

Or play the cards you hold.

Your shadow is a huge one,

Your image is never old.


We love your free spirit,

That you have held so dear,

We are missing you already.

It is hard to hold back tears.


So, when you reach the other side,

Please send us one small clue,

To let us know you are alright,

And this is what you choose.

Uncle Bob's 85th birthday celebration.
Uncle Bob's 85th birthday celebration.

Say hello to mom and dad,

And all those there you meet,

Give the cousins there with you,

And extra special treat.


Play your Dobro crystal clear,

Yodel up a song,

Keep those toes a tapping,

Let them sing along.


Dobro Bob, we love you,

Your stories we’ll tell our kids,

So, the next generation,

Will know you as we did.

Siblings together again in Heaven. I miss and love them all.
Siblings together again in Heaven. I miss and love them all.

      I'm so sorry. That's the hardest, with no time to prepare yourself. My prayers are with you.

      Thank you, Kari. We lost him yesterday to heart attack. He was so full of energy and seldom slowed down. It was a surprise we weren't ready for.

      I'm sorry for your loss. But, what a wonderful celebration of the man.
