June, Rob and Family, and Mike, our love and sympathy are with you all. I have many fond memories from the 50's of the Gray Brothers and the other Stewart Road kids playing in our front yard. We will keep you in our thoughts and prayers in the hours, days, and weeks ahead. God Bless each of you.

June, Rob, Mike, and family,
We are so very sorry for the loss of your precious loved one! We did not know about it until the funeral was over. We will continue to pray for all of you. If God did not give us the strength when we need it most, we would not make it in times like this, but He will uphold each of you and see you through this!
We love you all,
Linda, Larry, Ryan and Carla, Rhett and Stephanie

June, I just found out today of Bob's passing. As Peggy stated I too remember all of us kids playing from Stewart Rd. to Arden Dr. There were some vines hanging from trees in the woods behind the Overstreets. It is a wonder we didn't die right there in the woods. Although we didn't have much contact in recent years I have many fond memories of school days with Bob. My prayers are with you, Mike and the rest of the family.

June, Tommy and I just found out about Bob. Bob became such a dear friend to me when my and Dub's engagement broke up. I can not believe that he is gone. Growing up in the Watson Subdivision holds special memories. June, you, Mike and the rest of the family will be in my heart and prayers. Just thinking about Bob brings back some heart warming thoughts. God Bless you all. Brenda Davis
