However, the family encourages a ‘drive-thru parade’ for those who would like to pay tribute to Bob. You’re welcome to drive through the church’s parking lot to release balloons, honk your horn, or hand off a bereavement card to one of the parking lot attendants. Feel free to drive through anytime between 1-2:30p. And lastly, Bob would want you to know that the most important thing in life is your relationship with Jesus Christ. If you don’t know Him, today is be a great day to meet Him!
