I was really sorry to hear of Bobby's passing. Always fun to be around and a heart of gold. Just a really good guy. Take comfort in the fact that there is coming a great resurrection day and you will see him, and Marie, for eternity. Until then I do pray you will be keenly aware of God's presence and His everlasting arms.

Hello, my name is Garrett Taylor. I’m Julie’s second son. I would like share a few of my favorite things about grandpa.
I was always struck by his gratitude towards God when he would pray aloud for the food. He would thank God for everybody by name and for the blessing and joy they brought into his life.
He always had something to share about God’s love for us because of Christ’s atoning work for our sins on the cross.
In our last conversation together, he told me of an occasion when I was little we went to Lake Boone to hike the trail. I gave out very early and he carried me basically all the way around on his shoulders.
The Lord used Grandpa to inspire, encourage and exhort me in Christ that carried me through times when I was weak or stuck in my walk with Christ.
His last words to me, before he said he loves me and God loves me, were to remember:
“We are not saved by works of righteousness which we have done...but with the precious blood of Christ...that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.” Titus 3:5, 1 Peter 1:19, 2 Corinthians 5:21
“You be a good boy.”
Grandpa was a believer in the Lord Jesus Christ who loved God and his grandchildren. Before he would depart, he would tell each of us “I want to know that I love you and Jesus loves you.”
