The Godwin's offer their thoughts and prayers for the Family. We could share many stories of our love for this Family. Bobby was talented and very devoted to his Family. We spent many occasions in their home. Mr. and Mrs. Crow would have all the young people over and we would sing hymns on Sunday evening. We pray God's Blessings and Comfort for this Family,
we know Bob will be missed.

Bob led me to the Lord on March 17,1955. He was leading music at a revival at Elfers Baptist Church. I was 15, a steady church goer,not missing church for most of my early years but didn't understand salvation. Bob explained salvation to me and that night I went to the altar as Bob was leading the congregation singing Jesus Is Calling.The preacher was Marvin Kolb,his message was that the gift of God is eternal life. I remember being very shy, but that night it was like someone took my hand and led me down the altar. The shyness left. Thank you,Bob,for your influence in my young life. The Bible you gave me is still a treasured memory of your love for Christ.God bless your family.
