    I am so sorry to hear of your great loss. Recently I lost my dear mother, and within 30 days I also lost my mother-in-law. What helped us during this time period was the comfort from the Holy Bible, like at Isaiah 25 verse 8 – “The
    Sovereign Lord will swallow up death forever, and wipe away the tears from
    all faces.” Also at Revelation 21 verse 4 we find God’s promise to remove both
    pain and death. For more comfort, I turn to the website at:

    My prayers are with all of the family. I have not seen Bobby in quite a few years, but have thought about him often. I left Kentucky many years ago, but was back home back in 1996 and Bobby Sr and Bobby Jr came up for my fathers funeral and it was much appreciated. David Walker, Golden Valley, MN 612-290-8924
