    I just turned to the Werner Harmsen website and saw the obituary for Bob. I was sorry to see it as I know you two were so close. He was a good man and faithful husband. I pray God’s great comfort will be yours in the days ahead. I miss our visits but trust that between family and church you are being remembered. God bless, Pastor John White
