Our loss is heaven's gain. Bobby's was a life well lived. Everywhere he went he shared the Good News of Jesus Christ's love for him and what God had planned for them if they put their faith and trust in him as Lord and Savior. He was cherished by his family and friends. He was a great example to us all until God called him home.

Our deepest sympathies to Cissy and family. We will pray for you in the days ahead for the comfort of the Holy Spirit.

Love to all,
Ed & Laura Terry
