To The Family,
As a volunteer minister, I read the obituaries regularly. My goal is to use Gods word to bring comfort to the surviving family members during their moments of grief. I am really sorry for your loss. I know that no words can ease the grief and the pain in losing Mr. Bobby Hugh Howard has brought to your family. But remember that you are not alone, because God is your stronghold. God knows our feelings as well. When we are broken at heart or crushed in spirit, he draws near to us. (Psalms 31:7) He sustains us by providing comfort and encouragement,especially in moments like these. May your beautiful family be granted the strength, inner peace, and find comfort under God's wings of protection. My thoughts are with you all.

Mr. Terry

To the Family,
There are no words powerful enough to express sorrow for your loss. By dying for us Jesus also paved the way so that one day soon we will no longer experience the pain of losing our loved ones to that ugly enemy death.(1 Corinthians 15:26)
In the meantime, even though the pain of loss through death may sometimes seem insurmountable, rest assured that God will give you the strength necessary to endure the coming months (Psalm 46:1). Please accept my deepest sympathy and sincere condolences
