Bob was a sweetheart of a man and an excellent golfer. Many times I played with him through Sons of Hermann Golf Association. Immediately I latched on to him. He was always so kind & made me feel so comfortable. They just don’t make good people like him anymore. Knowing his sister & brother recently passed I hope that made him go more peacefully. He was a man who stood out to me. He will always be very special in my heart & I will miss him dearly.

When I first met Mr. Overgaard I had went by his residence to speak to a friend who I had met at one of the stores not too long ago. When I first pulled up into their yard he was the first one to come out and he introduced himself and asked my name and after we had shook hands for the first time he treated me like an old friend and like we had known each other for years. From day one he never treated me like a stranger and even though I have trouble sometimes remembering a person's name or face he came up to me at the store the second time that we met and without hesitation called my name and when I turned around he had his hand out for another handshake just like we were still old friends. I have carried to him and the rest of his family last year several bags of different kinds of peppers, tomatoes, okra, and other things that came from the little garden where I'm currently staying at and almost, but not every time asked me what did he owe me for any of it and I simply answered him telling him that he owed me nothing because I thought so much about him and his family and I didn't want to see any of it go to waste and spoil and that whenever I would have anymore vegetables or fruit instead of taking it to anyone else and selling it to them for a little bit of cash. I don't know a lot of people here because of where I'm from and haven't been living anywhere near Palmer or for the state of Texas at all in general because I had only made my first trip out here in 2009-2010 and after meeting someone who was local in the area and making a lot of huge decisions, I made the move permanent and even though there has been bumps in the old dirt road I really believe that there was a really good reason why God had helped me come to grips with me and making the transition to move here one of the best decisions in my life. Before I became disabled and forced to hangup from a career in fire and EMS as a EMT-Cardiatatric tech or a bona-fide ditch doctor I mainly stayed indoors and not get out that much. But to my new friend that I had met not too long ago I wasn't a stranger to him and after going through a terrible situation several years ago and after he had asked me about what had happened those many years back he had invited me to come over whenever there was a holiday like Thanksgiving or Christmas and come sit down and break bread with them and celebrate the holidays. He was the type of person that welcomed anyone that had never done any of his family wrong or had gossiped and told bad rumors about any and all of his family and friends at all. He always invited me in and told me to come sit a spell with him and we would have some great conversations, except about golf because every time I told him that when I'd hit a golf ball including the Sahara Desert, I'd knock out a windshield of a car or the window of a house and he'd just start having a big old grin on his face. From the time I had met him you could tell, or maybe it's just from my opinion, that he had taught his daughter and grandkids about how to really treat people with respect and that everyone needed to be a hard worker and not just another lump on the couch and waste a day away. It hurt my feelings and broke my heart when his daughter had ran into me at the store the other day and about what was going on. There's not too many people like him left in the world because most people would try to say that they were just like him in the way they would treat someone and never really do it, but not him. He would tell and backed it up with proof that that was the kind of person he was. I think that heaven just got a really really great angel and in my heart that he would be watching over all of his family and friends until everyone gets to heaven and meet back up with him there. I send a lot of condolences and prayers up to God for his family and friends so that they may have a peaceful life and know that he's not really gone, but just moved away for a little bit to help prepare a place for them to come home when Jesus makes the call. I have a lot of respect and love for him and his family and can't wait to see the look on their faces when we all meet back up. It was a great honor and pleasure in meeting their family and I hope that God blesses every one of them.
