Bobby, I am so sorry for your loss. We have lost a lot of our class of '65, also. I am thinking of you and your children as you go down this path. I lost my only sibling, Phyllis, 3 years ago and miss her everyday.
I can't imagine your loss but am sure will experience this and many such.

I am so sorry for the loss of Pam. Makes us long for heaven all the more! I remember every time there was an opportunity at church for testimony she would share how much she was thankful for her husband. Looking forward to heaven with no more sickness and death.
