Hard to believe it's been almost a year since we lost you. Think of you often especially missed calling you and reminding you of our Gospel Show on Saturday. I see different shows and think how you would have enjoyed them. You were a wonderful friend. I miss you Bob. Miss having coffee with you every morning. Love, Shelby

I always remember heading out to Uncle Bob's when I would visit my Grandma Zora in Orrstown. He always had a smile on his face and was so welcoming. It makes me sad to know that he, Zora, and the rest of Cal Martin's family are all gone now. Rest In Peace.
