Prayers for the Boyle's family. Bob was one of the kindest men I knew. He always had a warm hug and a great smile for you. We dearly loved him and Suette as family. We always looked forward to seeing him on his visits to NC. He will be greatly missed. Truly loved the tribute to him and his life. I am sorry we couldn't be there in person, but we are with y'all in heart and spirit.
