The Bob Glassmeyer Memorial Fund

On March 13, 2019, our beloved Bob ended his lifelong battle with Cystic Fibrosis and went home to be with the Lord.  After God, the thing he loved most in this world was his wife, Melissa.  For 20 years they have been battling this disease and that battle has included countless hospital stays, treatments, tests, doctors visits, medical equipment purchases and ultimately rendered them both unable to work (Bob due to his illness and Melissa because he needed constant care). 

Bob was the most loyal husband, son, brother, uncle and friend and would do anything for anyone - even though he had the least to give sometimes. 

Without him Melissa is faced with a huge financial struggle on top of the overwhelming grief and loneliness that losing him has left behind. 

We made a promise to Bob that we would care for her and help her find a way to live her life again.  Knowing she is taken care of financially would give Bob so much peace. A donation, no matter how small, will help address her immediate needs and will honor Bob's greatest wish, which was for her happiness.
