    May this message serve as an expression of our deep and sincere sympathy.

    If only there were something
    That friends could say or do,
    Some way they may express their thoughts and help to comfort Bobby and the family yet, perhaps just knowing we care will help, at least in some small way to ease the loss you bear. This family shall remain in our continued prayers.
    God is our refuge and our strength, a very present help in trouble. Trust Him.

    May the Lord give you light to light your way.

    during these mournful times.
    May warmth and solace rest in your heart
    May loving memories bring you nothing but joy
    as you wade through this turbulent storm.
