Sad to lose Bobby, but so glad that all his suffering and trials are finished. He is peacefully in Heaven and waits for us to join him in the new creation where there will be no pain or suffering. Where everything is as God intended it. Bobby always amazed me with his tales of adventure and living life to the fullest. His joy always came through in every conversation. He will be truly missed. My sincere condolences to his family and friends.
