To all the Carpenter family, Pastor Bob Carpenter used to be my Landlord at 1218 1/2 Frost, He was a great man and will be missed for sure, but I have no doubt he is with Jesus his and my Lord and Savior and I know I will see him again. When we met he was painting the apartment I was going to rent from him and we talked about the Bible and the Lord. When I got back to Texas recently I tried to look him up to no avail and apologize I missed his funeral service as I would have been there for support. it may interest you to know I am a Pastor now and Im sure Pastor Bob Carpenter would be proud and so happy, I pray the good Lord comfort you and keep and protect you in this your time of need, sincerely your friend Pastor Bob Carpenter forever, Pastor Bob Fraga. Should you need or want to contact me please feel free.

Pastor Bob was a wonderful man, a kind gentle person, who treated everyone with respect and dignity. He was my grandparents next door neighbor for many years, then was Tiffany, Chad & CJ's neighbor for several years. My Dad Robert, would help Pastor Bob with his garden and they shared stories thru the years. We kept up with Pastor Bob at Christmas and his birthday always sending him pictures of CJ as he grew up. Our family shares in your sorrow of his death, but know that he is up in heaven with his wife and friends. Thank you for allowing him to be a part of our family all of these years. He will be greatly missed. Annette Crook, Chad Moran Jr, Aimee & Caprice; Doris & Robin Schmedthorst, Mark, Adria Schmedthorst and family.
