I just want to thank you for always showing me love and kindness, and welcoming into your home. You were not only a friend to me but a true father figure and treated me as one of your sons. I will always remember just talking to you about life in general and how your input was so instrumental in the decisions I have made along the way. Again thank you for your love and guidance that you showed me and my family you are truly going to be missed but never forgotten rest in heavenly peace

My big teddy bear uncle every time your name is mentioned to me it always made me happy because all that know you have never had a single bad word nor thought of you. You made it easy to say that’s my uncle and proud to tell anyone whether asked or not about the influence you had in me being who I am today and the wishes and desire for you to feel the same about what you have taught me. I will never be able to fill your shoes but know I put fertilizer on them everyday with the intent to be the man you are and will always be. It’s said that Jesus doesn’t pick wilted flowers for his father and that’s done out of respect for his father my God. Well we have given him the strongest most dedicated and thriving flower he could ever put in his garden. Unc rest knowing your tutorlidge and knowledge has been well received and always reciprocated. Rest Easy Bob, Deb and Dre love you all and rock steady.

My Uncle was a great and powerful man with a humongous heart. His love and humor was the soul of the family. He helped me as a young man to navigate through life's hard parts. And now in this time of celebrating his life and memories. All  I can think of is how happy he made me feel when he was around...Forever love Gregory Dickens
