To Darlene, Kathy and the rest of the family:

Mike and I would like to express our sincere condolences to you all for the loss of Bobby Ray. Daddy ( Homer Frankum) always thought very highly of Bobby and your family. I guess they are up in heaven reminiscing right now. Darlene, you and Bobby have always been so kind to us. As I was looking at all the pictures of your family, I realized what a wonderful legacy Bobby has, and what a blessed life he has had on this earth to have such beautiful kids, grandkids and great-grandchildren. Darlene, to have been married for 65 yrs is a most amazing achievement. I know you will all miss him terribly. I pray for God to bless you all with His perfect peace at this difficult time.

Best Wishes and Prayers

Mike and Carol ( Frankum) Petty
