Bob's service...

They had a really nice service for my father-in-law Bob Harris yesterday. They had setup Bob's motorcycle was in the lobby of the church. It was pretty intense when we first walked in to see that. Thursday was the visitation and it was a pretty emotional day. The one really amazing thing was the number of people who came to pay their respects. Someone said that the pastor said the only other time he had seen that many people come in for a visitation was when a local senator had died.

Anyway, I thought I would attach the obituary from the Pea Ridge newspaper...
