My beautiful Mother-In-Law Bobbie Ewton. One class act lady. One Godly woman. Bobbie blessed my life in so many ways. Loved her from the moment I met her in 1980. Bobbie made Dad happy, made him smile and made him be a better man. Her speciality was to bring out the best in people with her smile and welcoming arms of love and encouragement. My favorite memory among so very many was one Sunday during worship singing at Dad and Bobbie’s church standing next to her singing “Because He Lives, I Can Face Tomorrow”” was her sweet whisper to me “this is your song”. Ms. Bobbie, it’s our song. You are enjoying glory today and we will sing again together one day in heaven reunited with no heartaches, no pain and enjoying glory together as a family. I am forever grateful for this woman who had a tremendous impact in my life to increase in faith and trust God through the good and bad times. And, thank God I have photo albums full of the many photos Bobbie took. I was truly blessed with the gift of the most amazing Mother-In-Law any young woman could ever ask for. Hope Ms. Bobbie is drinking strong coffee in heaven and smiling wide.

We will miss you! Tall and elegant, church hats and gloves, toenails polished, white sandals, picture taking, Bible reading at 5:00, and hollandaise sauce. Always handed out the Christmas presents. She loved us all and I loved her! Your niece, Cindy
