Michael, Penny and Family: Our good thoughts and healing prayers are with you. While you all are dealing with such great sorrow, please remember Aunt Bobbie is alive and well in Heaven. There is such a great party going on right now in Heaven. I imagine the place is overcrowded with pure joy and laughter! While pure joy and laughter in Heaven doesn't help us much here on earth, please allow the thoughts of such pure joy give you all some peace and comfort... God bless, Love, The Roland Family, Tanya, Paul, Kate, Luke, Emily, Thomas and Nora Rose

My Aunt Bobby was a very special and patient woman who always welcomed me and my sister. Sometimes I would spend weeks at a time in the summertime at her and my uncle's farm with my 3 cousins. The family was everything to her and she was like a second mother to me and my sister.

To my cousins and family, my condolences go out to you. I apologize for not being able to get back in these trying times from Bahrain in the Middle East. My thoughts and prayers are with you.
