Through the past twenty years we have become a family. Each month we have met to celebrate the graduating class of 1960 Union High, dining, sharing, hugging, caring. We have a bond that cannot be broken by time or passing. Bob will always be with us. And we will always be there for Lyda. God bless her as he keeps Bob in His care.

May the promise found at Isaiah 25:8 bring some comfort in the death of Mr. Cox. “God will swallow up death forever. The Sovereign Lord will wipe away the tears from all faces.” Just imagine, no more pain and grief due to the death of a love one! By means of the Kingdom that Jesus Christ taught us to pray for, God is going to remove sickness, old age and death from the human family.
