"Bob was a friend of Judy and Arv Sundberg and a friend of Grothe Farm near Tekamah. Bob assisted us in putting new plumbing in a rental house in Tekamah, Nebraska, and working with Mike Marsh remolding the bathroom in the house. Grothe Farm is making a donation to Danny Thomas' Children Miracle Network in memory of Bob. He was our friend."
