Bob always made sure to stop in and give a candy. He was so funny and told people what he thought without surger coating it. I will miss him.
Bob was a wonderful man that new how to get me to smile even when I was having a bad day. I looked forward in hearing his humming or whistling as he came walking down the isles at Walmart to greet me, as well as my many other coworks, many times a week. I liked hearing his stories and seeing the smile he got by just offering a simple piece of candy to eveyone he met. I will miss him dearly!
