    Pat, Marlys and Rebecca, Bob was a longtime family friend and one of the nicest people I know. I am so sorry that he became as ill as he was because he didn't deserve that. But he is at rest with his heavenly Father which he does deserve. He, Oneta, mom and dad are playing cards together again. I'm sure this will leave a huge hole in your lives. He was very proud of you,Pat. May God wrap his loving arms around you and give you comfort.

    Dear Patrick and Rebecca, The Doses are so sorry to hear of your Dad's passing. He and Oneta were wonderful friends to our parents and offered great help to our Dad, Leonard W. Dose Sr., in the keeping of our two family cows on our 5 acre "farm" on No. 2nd St. I don't know how they'd have kept milk on the table, literally, without the cows and Bob's help. He and Oneda also let me ride my bike out to the farm and shoot my Dad's .22 for kicks. God bless their souls and may the perpetual light shine upon them both. God bless you both too.
