Bob has been a friend of mine since he started managing the Safeway in Mineral Wells. I am really going to miss not seeing him at the Legion. He was one of the good ones.

I had the honor of working for Mr Henson 10 years, up until the store closed. He was a very tough boss but the best one I ever had. Cared greatly about his customers and his employees.
