Offering condolence to the family and friends of Robert Truman. As you cherish the many memories of Mr. Truman, reflect on the time when aging..., sickness... & death... will be conditions of the past! (Revelation 21:3,4; 1Corinthians 15: 26) This is what our loving God Jehovah has promised and Jesus Christ himself guaranteed the hope of seeing our loved ones again by means of the resurrection. (John 5:28,29; Acts 24:15; Isaiah 26:19)
May God’s word bring you comfort now and in the days to come, as we await the fulfillment of his promises!

Robert, Jimmy, Lisa, Cathy and family -- we are so sorry that you had to let Bob go. May your cherished memories keep him alive in your hearts. I loved his grin and calm demeanor. I always remember Bob and Cathy relaxing on their porch (probably watching everything we did -- or escaping to a quiet zone if Jimmy had a new album -- haha). My family appreciated and enjoyed having nice neighbors on Buckeye St. We miss you and want you to know we are thinking about you.
Sincerely, Gina and Bob Zachman
