  6. We have had the wonderful pleasure to know Bob & Francis since the opening of Fairlane Barber shop. Bob has been a life long friend. It was fun having Bob come and hunt turkey and deer at the ranch. Stevie said Bob was the only old man that got excitied when he was fishing for perch. We loved the stories he told about riding his mule Annie down at the river. We will miss the visits when Francis would bring Bob down to see the deer. We have wonderful memories of Bob and he will be greatly missed. May God comfort Francis & the family . We have been blessed to have known Bob.

    Love You All, Cindy
