    Connie and Family, Our prayers go out to you and your family during this time of the loss of your loved one. May the Lord comfort and give you peace and understanding during this time. I had a lot of respect for Bob when I come to know him as we were classmates. We belonged to the FFA and other classes at Jamestown High School. Bob is in his heavenly home with Jesus. We shall meet him again in paradise. Love to all.

    Mrs, Weygandt and Vicky, Valerie and Roxanne,
    So sorry for all of you and praying that Holy Spirit’s comfort will protect your hearts as you begin this journey through grief. Mr. Weygandt was Jesus with skin on, always ready with a kind smile, so humble and willing to help others. He was a constant in my life at Maysville Church. My parents thought so highly of Mr. “Bob” and his love and dedication to his family, his farm and his Lord. My heart is sad for all of you. What a truly special husband and father you were blessed with. Thankful you have the confidence and peace in knowing he now celebrates his new life with his Lord.
    Blessings,
    Colleen (Scott) Jackson
