Condolences to Mr. Bob's family. I hope you can find comfort in Jesus’ promise at John 5:28, 29 – “Do not be amazed at this…all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out, those who did good things to a resurrection of life.” After this promised resurrection, we can look forward to being reunited with our loved ones in peaceful and happy conditions on earth (Psalms 37:11, 29).

Our deepest sympathies go out to Susan, Tina, Michael and the rest of Bob's family and friends. While I worked with him at Bronze Craft, Bob was a mentor and role model for my career development, and I think of him often today. More importantly, Bob showed compassion and concern to our family when one of our children experienced some medical issues, showing his true human side. We were fortunate to know Bob Cater. Rest in Peace.
