Sorry to hear about the passing of Rodney my cousin. We knew him as Rodney growing up and visiting with Grandma and Grandpa Roberton in Cowley every summer. We later came to know him as Robert (Bob) in Colorado Springs when we visited our daughter, Wendy Myers. I know Uncle Bob and Aunt Thelma were proud of their family, we will miss hearing stories about Rodney Robert. Love to the Yorgason family.

We so loved Bob and Bonnie! What good friends they have been for 50 years!! We know that they are happy to be together once again. May the Yorgason family gain strength from their Father in Heaven during this difficult time. Rest in peace, Bob!
