    I don’t know what to say. Rayn I’m so sorry, I have so many memories of Bob. They all make me smile. He gave me my first tattoo. A little dot on forearm think he has one in same spot. I remember going with him to get his pay from Everett. And singing to me (knock knock knockin on Everett’s door ) I remember him picking up Kirk’s guitar on the street in Rockford and spontaneously playing over the hills and far away. He had a great voice. So many memories. We lost touch, hadn’t seen him in 20 years. I’m really grateful for having known him and his family.

    Bob was the kind of friend you rarely (if ever) find in life. The times we spent playing music together made me what I am today. You will be missed dearly, Bob. Now go show SRV some new licks! Brothers for eternity.

    To the very special family of Bob; I didn’t know Bob but he must have been an awesome guy judging by the rest of his family. My heart goes out to Bunnie, John, Dawn, Scott and all of the family in the loss of their most special Bob! Love you all!

    I will miss your electric blue eyes, your beautiful smile, your contagious laugh and all your gifted guitar picking you so graciously shared with many. Thank you dear God for blessing me with the opportunity to have known one of your Angels. Rest in Peace my friend. It’s not “Goodbye” it’s just “See you Later”
