Happy Birthday, Bob

Today Bob is 80 years old!!!!
Yesterday we were able to go over to Eddie's for a short while and join around 15 of our family members as we celebrated his homecoming and his 80 years...

Bob and his boys....

Kylee and Benjamin made him special cards but were too shy to give them to they gave them to me to hand to him :)

Eddie and Laura dish up the Blue Bell Homemade Vanilla....hummmmmm...

Delicious chocolate cake also....


  1. Meme-I keep trying to comment and it wont go-trying yet again.

  2. Meme , wow I finally made it through. I left you a long comment several times and just wanted you to know how much you have been in my prayers(Daily~sometimes hourly) I wish I could see you and Papa but I'm so thankful Barbie has been able to come so often-she needed to as much as you needed her.I look forward to your Alabama move-what a gift. I was thinking when Papa came home the other day how much I was reminded when my Daddy had a half year of hospitals and rehab and depressionwith his two strokes- how all the steps seemed like baby steps and it was hard but here we are years later and life is different but it's a gift and I thank God for it.So remember God is there through all these baby steps and He is walking them with you and this year Thanksgiving will be even more special.
    Let me call back to you that God is with you -all sufficient and wanting to comfort and lift you~

    If you have gone a little way ahead of me call back-
    Twill cheer my heart and help my feet along the stony track;
    And if per chance, Faith's light is dim because the oil is low,
    your call will guide my lagging course as wearily I go.
    Call back and tell me that He went with you in the storm,
    Call back and say He kept you when the forest's roots were torn;
    That when the heavens thunder and the earthquake shook the hill,
    He bore you up and held you
    where the very air was still.
    Oh friend, call back and tell me
    for I cannot see your face;
    They say it glows with triumph
    and your feet bound in the race.
    But there are mists between us
    and my spirits eyes are dim,
    And I cannot see the glory
    though I long for word from Him.
    But You'll say He heard you
    when your prayer was but a cry,
    And if you'll say He saw you
    through the nights sub-darkened sky-
    If you have gone a little way ahead,
    oh friend, call back-
    Twill cheer my heart and help my feet
    along the stony track.

    I love you Meme and you are an inspiration to me!!!

  3. Happy 80th, Bob! Oh I am so thankful to read Bob is doing better, you both are home, the most wonderful place in the world, and just in time to celebrate a birthday! I can't imagine how difficult it must have been all those days in the hospital, but that is over now, may happiness be your only concern.


Thanks for your comments..I enjoy receiving them..
