  • Keeping you and Angel in our prayers. No more pain and suffering for Bobby. Bob, every kid should have a Father like you. Bobby was very fortunate to have you as his Dad. Much love to both of you.

  • So sorry to hear of the loss of Bobby. At a Time such as this you have many questions regarding the purpose of life and why Bobby had such a short life. The Bible helps us answer these questions, and gives us hope that we will see Bobby one day again very soon right here on Earth. Please read in the Bible at John chapter 5 verse 28 and 29 to read about this promise from Jesus. Please accept my condolences.

  • I will miss Bobby’s wide smile and wry sense of humor, both of which lasted to the end. My thoughts are with his family.
