I loved my Uncle Bobbie he was dear to me and my brothers and sisters. He was my Dads brother which I know my dad loved him too. Upon my visit with him on June 1 2013. He let us know after we prayed for him that he loved Jesus and that was a joy to my brother Ricky and sister Jan to know. I thank God that we had a chance to visit him before he went home to be with the Lord. Kathy his niece of Columbus Ohio.
