This is my eulogy to Bob. Lee Miller, husband.
Lord knows Bob could be an pain in the butt, but he loved us deeply. He was so proud of his Kid's, grandkids and my son, Correy. Family meant so much to him and the love was true and will last forever.
I loved that man for 30 Years. We had a whirlwind romance. We met at a bar in Sacramento. First time I had ever been out to a gay bar. I sat at the end of the bar and ordered a strawberry daiquiri. I thought gay people drank pink drinks! Bob was at the other end eyeing me. He told Roger our bartender he thought I was hot (imagine that) and Roger said I was too chubby for him. They asked me to join them and that was all it took. We started dating and six weeks later I proposed. That was 30 years ago. I loved that man even when he was insufferable. We’ve had a great life together and I can’t regret one moment.
He loved his cats and became THAT cat lady. When I was working at Goodwill I got a call from him. He was sitting on the patio when this black cat came up and jumped into his lap and they napped together. That can was Stinky. The most precious moment for me was after he passed Stinky jumped up and laid down in his lap and stayed there until the mortuary came to pick Bob up.
There was a song that came on Pandora “Standing by the river just to get a glimpse of what is over on the other side”. There was a point when we were all around him when the time was nearing and he smiled. I can’t help to think that he caught a glimpse of what was waiting over on the other side.
Mostly he was extremely proud of his s 30 years of service in the Air Force. He served with AFTAC in Nuclear Detection around the world and he was especially proud of his support of the F117a Stealth Fighter. That was his baby. I honor him for his service and dedication!
