Many of you know Bob Rice and are aware that he is courageously battling kidney cancer. Bob grew up in High Shoals with my dad, Avery Tucker. My name is Melea-Tucker Jimenez. My dad Avery also courageously fought lung cancer and went to be with the Lord on September 10th of 2009. My mom is Martha Withers Tucker and my Grandparents are Robert & Rudy Tucker and Ralph & Olie Withers, all of High Shoals.
The Rice family lived one mill house from us on Cherry Street and were second family growing up. Angie, Todd, "Bojo"-Bobby Joe Jr. and Jennifer were like sisters and brothers to me. Those were the days! I visited with Bob and his family last week and received a wonderful blessing! Bob was in great spirits and has a very strong faith in God. Just talking with him and his family blessed by heart! During the conversation Bob memtioned the High Shoals website. Someone had told him about it and he wanted the address so that he could visit it himself.
Please leave a "Remember when...message" to Bob and keep him and his precious family in your prayers.
