Very Sorry to hear of Bobs passing ! I was in Harrisburg for Pa Farm Show.
Bob was a good friend to Me. We had Good "Farm" talk usually at the Meadville Livestock Auction. Last Spring I bought a curly hair pig and Bob hauled him home for Me. He did not want any Money (I paid $12.50 for the pig) That pig's name ever since that day was / is: "BOB"
Our Prayers and Deepest thoughts go out to the "Kings".
God's Hands hold and comfort You at this time and Always.
