I was shocked to hear that "Uncle Rob" (as I lovingly called him) had passed away yesterday. I have many childhood memories of fun times our families spent together. He was a sweet cheerful man, and always greeted me with a smile. My thoughts and prayers are with you, Pam and Bob, as well as my deepest sympathy. "Uncle Rob" will be greatly missed.

I am so sorry to hear about Uncle Rob's passing. He was a very funny and loving person and always seem to be in a great mood and was always able to make me laugh. Pam & Bobby, it's so hard losing a father. May fond and loving memories help you in this time of deep sorrow. Dorothy, I can't imagine how you feel other that devastation and great loss and sadness after being with someone for so long. He was a wonderful person and I'm sure you'll miss him very much. My thoughts and prayers are with you. Love, Debbie (Moseley) Burdette

I’m sorry to hear of Robs passing. I have very fond memories of the times I saw him when we would visit Myrt and granny Moseley. He made me laugh and was a real joy to be around. He was there to comfort me at my Dads funeral and I’m sorry I cannot be there for his. Though it has been many years since I saw him last I will miss him as I’m sure you will.

Bob Moseley - what a great, great man. In the early 70's my wife and I participated in Bible studies Bob conducted. I reckon those sessions were the first time I'd really had my eyes opened about reading and praying and understanding. We moved away and over the last 40 years have lost touch with many Greensboro folks. But there will always be a special place in my heart for Bob Moseley, a man who allowed God to use him as a conduit to spread the Word.
