Grandaddy....In my eyes, you are the greatest man in the world! Life will never be the same without you...

So heaven has received another angel
The night sky another star
Your life has become a loving memory
I know you will never be far.
I know you are watching over me and my girls
As my life goes on
I will treasure the memories I have of you
I cant believe your gone!
You were a loving caring grandaddy
You were there for me always
You will always hold a place in my heart
A loving treasured spot.
You were really one in a million
A cut above the rest
All that knew you would agree
You simply were the best.
So grandaddy I will say goodbye
I love and miss you with all my heart
But as long as I have my loving memories
We will never be too far apart.

Rest in Peace <3

Dear family of Bobby Delano Boss,

I am so very sorry for the loss of a husband, father, and grandfather. The pain of losing someone so treasured and loved is indescribable, and there are hardly any words for consolation. What if you had the chance to see him again though? The Bible promises in Acts 24:15 that “there is going to be a resurrection of both the righteous and the unrighteous.” Jehovah God has made provisions so that we can see our beloved ones who have passed away and enjoy everlasting life in a paradise with them (Romans 6:23). I hope to know what the future holds, comes as a consolation and hope to your family.

Feel free to e-mail me if you would like to discuss more at

David Pope said...

Bob you were one of the finest men I have had the honor to know. You took on the responcibility of adopting 2 children that were not yours and raising them as your own. You were ahard worker never did anything halfway. You were a shineing example of how a man should be. I hope that I some how have lived up to your example. I will miss our boys days out. I will always be here to love and care for your daughter Shana. And we will care andtake care of your wife Annett as long as the Lord allows us to. Be in peace my friend. Your work is over. Go rest on that mountain. You earned it.
