  1. Dear Moss/Reed family,

    I was so very sorry to hear about Bob’s passing. He was a very good friend to my Dad as well as a great neighbor for many years on Lance Lane. My prayers go out to your family.

  2. My deepest sympathies to the entire Moss family. Mr Moss was not only my family’s insurance agent for years before the passing of my parents. He also worked with my father, grandfather and several of my uncles at US Motors. I remember him as being a kind man with a great sense of humor and a family friend.

  3. Sending your family our deepest and sincere condolences. Hoping that God’s grace will continue to comfort and guide you during this difficult time. Keeping you in oour prayers. Muriel & Paula Curry
