My Granddaughter, Rebecca asks us to pray for two of her friends; Teresa and Nadia of Navarre Florida.
It was almost 31 years ago. I was just hired by Lake Erie Medical. Penny and I were at a movie celebrating our 20th anniversary. Bob saw me as we were coming out of the theater (The movie was "Major League" a story about the Cleveland Indians. Bob was a big Detroit Tiger fan. He not only said hello but he was so friendly to this new employee, his wonderful wife, Cathie, asked him if I was one of his "Golf buddies". This was the first of many great memories of Bob Holmes. He was my boss but he was also such a great friend. Over the years, I watched Bob with friends and family. I have never met a more genuine, loving and caring person. Bob died this morning. He was much too young to leave us, but God's ways are not always our ways. Bob was a devoted husband, father, brother, son and one of the nicest men I have had the pleasure to know. God speed Bob. You will be missed by many and loved forever. Please pray for the family and friends of Bob Holmes at this terrible time.
