Thank you all so much for your encouraging comments and especially for your prayers.
Bob has been ill for several years and lately had been failing rapidly. He was ready to move on to a new body and a better life. He died quickly and peacefully in his own bed, which is what he would have chosen if the choice had been his.
Son John blogged about Bob here.
Today Bob's obituary was in the Kalamazoo Gazette and the Battle Creek Enquirer. The best job of posting it online was done by the Paw Paw Courier Leader, here.
Even though I haven't knit a stitch or taken a picture in over a week, my intention is to start blogging again this coming week.
