We can even be reunited with our lost loved ones. (John 5:28,29)

Bob and Deb,

Ours thoughts and condolences go out to you and your loved ones with the news of the passing of your Father.

He was a great man and I have fond memories of evenings spent in your home as a youth with the FD scanner as the background music. Little did I know at the time I would end up following in his footsteps and still think about him every time the bell goes off at work.

Love Jeff and Family

Condolence from Eloise Wiegand on December 13th, 2010 1:18 pm

It’s now been a few weeks but I’m sure the sorrow/sadness is still in your hearts especially as Christmastime grows near. I have been thinking of you both so much lately. Wish I could have come to the funeral, but wish even more I could have visited with Bob in person one last time. I know he is happy now that he is reunited with Peg. Looking forward to seeing you guys as soon as you can make plans to come to Arkansas. I love you both. Aunt Eloise
