I loved cousin Bobby with all my heart and will continue to do so the rest of my life. I have fond memories of "Pickle" visiting us on the farm when I was little. He always brought happiness and fun along with him on those visits. He was a wonderful, sincere human being and will be deeply missed in this existence.

When I think of Robert L. Cheney "Bob," I think of him in relation to our Richwood First United Methodist Church, as a "rock of Gibraltar," solid, quiet, dependable, always available as needed.
We will all miss him.
My sympathy to all his family - Mathew 5:4 Blessed are those who mourn,for they will be comforted.
