Dennis, Nick and family, I am so sorry for your loss. Bobbie will be remembered as a loving Sunday School teacher to my kids. I appreciate the time she invested in their lives. We shared many evenings together in A Bible Study in your home. Those were good times spending time in fellowship and in God's word. I will remember Bobbie, as someone who truly loved her Savior. May God grant you peace in knowing she is in his loving arms and free from pain.

Dear Dennis

I didn't know about Bobbie's passing until I just now read about it. I am so sorry this is late. I am sorry about this.

We always suffer so when a loved one leaves us. But when we know they know the Lord we are pleased because we know they are with Jesus enjoying heaven. No more tears no more pain and being with Jamey. Time is a healer they say but now is too raw to fresh. Just know Allen and I know how hard this is on you and pray the comforter will give you peace and rest just rest in his arms.
