Bob was my classmate and a friend of mine during our high schooldays. Although we lost touch over the years, everytime I saw his brother, Jim I asked about him. I know he will be missed by his friend and family. Rest in heaven, Bob.

Wanda, Jim, Ann and the Smith Family,
The Garlitz family express deep sympathy with the loss of Bobby. He was a great "CRICK RAT" and I always considered him a friend. He always had kind words and was good for some conversations (that lasted awhile) of what was going on up and down the CRICK. No we did not considered it as gossip).
You all have outstanding memories of Bob and those will help you through this sad time and forever.
God Bless all of you and a candle will be lit in church with prayers tomorrow.

The Garlitz Family

I offer my deepest condolences to the Smith family on your loss. Isaiah 25:8 says that He will swallow up death forever, And the Sovereign Lord Jehovah will wipe away the tears from all faces.
I pray that this scripture brings some comfort to the family during their time of bereavement.
