I first met Bobby when I moved to GCS in 1976. Over the years I watched him grow into a decent and respectful man, husband, father and grandfather. The obvious love that he had for his family and for God was something to be admired by anyone who met him.
My prayers go out to Bobby's family and all of those who loved him. May God's love wash over you and fill you. May you find peace and comfort in knowing that Bobby is experiencing the kind of joy that we can only imagine.
"Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted." Matthew 5:4
