  1. When we remember Bob, it will surely be a collage of TV Westerns, his recliner, cowboy boots, plaid shirts, fishing, hunting, & old fixer up jeeps. He was always the quiet one at a party, but that didn't mean he wasn't having a good time. So at the next family gathering, we will have everyone watch a Western on TV and smile real big in his memory. With love from another TV Western Fan, your brother & sister-in-law, David & Marilyn Garnett

  2. Psalm 34: 18 tells us: "Jehovah is close to the brokenhearted; He saves those who are crushed in spirit." For more comforting scriptures please visit: The family is in my prayers and I offer my heartfelt condolences.
