I was so shocked and surprised to hear of Bob's death. He was such a "good" person. Always helping other's, always had a smile on his face. Didn't matter how long it had been since you saw him, he was always glad to see you.
May the memories of the love he displayed to you help you thru this most difficult time.
Know that many are thinking of you. :) Teresa

I met Bob many years ago when he worked at Cloverleaf Shell. Bob was a good man and was well respected. We have run into each other a few times in recent years and have had some good conversations about the old days. My thoughts and prayers are with Bob and his family.

To all the family. Mr. Lenhart was the niciest funniest person in the world. Where ever you saw him he had a joke to tell and a smile on his face. I know that I the Trashy Woman will miss him a lot because he was the only person I'll ever be the trashy woman for. I hope with time your pain lessens and that you will remember all the wonderful joy and comfort that he gave to you and everyone he met. Always cherish the memories because that is what he would want you to do. P.S. but never forget the fuzz in the navel. Love you all Trashy Woman, Ronnie, and Michelle
