  2. CandleImageBob, you are going to be missed by the entire family. Ken and I truly appreciated the time you shared your beautiful state with us. We saw many sites we would never have explored. The you and Shirley were so very special and I know you will be united once again.
    Ken could not have had a better cousin.
    Our prayers are with Bobby, Julie and the girls.

  3. CandleImageI had the pleasure of knowing Bob at the gas station on Hwy 50 when I started working at Pueblo Dodge, he was always smiling and chatting with me, RIP.

  4. Peace and Healing!
    The moment I met Bobby and Shirley at THE CENTER during a Prayer Service I immediately saw such a bonded, connected couple. They just seemed so good together and after the Service we spoke and from that moment on they kept coming to THE CENTER. What a meek and kind man. I think of Barnabas in the Bible which says “He was a good man.” That’s all they said about Barnabas but the word “good” carries some very deep lasting feeling for me about Bobby. I anointed and prayed with him at University Park Care Center and I knew he was ready to come back home then… nothing like being home and now he is HOME with Shirley. I’m sure she was waiting for him as he made that choice to surrender and be welcome at the Table of the Lord. I think I would be correct in saying that probably for his HOMECOMING they served him waffles. . . just like the Waffle House in Canon City! My love to all of you and glad that Brianna will be with us this time. I understand those programs that once you are in you cannot leave. That’s the sign of a good PA place. Peace, Fr. Frank Davied
