Mrs. Albee, I was so sad to hear of Mr. Bobby's passing. My prayers are with you and your family. Knowing he is with the Lord makes it a lot easier to give them up but I know you will seem lost without him. I can't help but think he and Daddy are up there sitting out under a shade tree and trading stories. Mr. Bobby was a great friend and brother to my Daddy and I am blessed that I got to know him, and you. I love you and I will be praying. Love in Christ, Janet Wood
