Bob Malancon

Bob Malancon
of Thibodaux. LA

Eternal rest grant unto Bob, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon him. May the souls of the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen.

"Many of you knew Bob Melancon. I had posted a couple of weeks ago requesting prayer for a collector friend who was having heart bypass surgery. That was for Bob. Bob went through the heart surgery fine but later developed some problems related to his lungs. Bob passed away last Thursday early in the morning. I wanted to wait until after Easter to post this. Please keep Bob's family in your prayers while they are dealing with Bob's passing. I know they will have many trials ahead during this difficult time. I do not know any details for the arrangements but I will post them when I find out. Thanks to all that said prayers for Bob, he and his family appreciated them very much."
