    Oh my dear dear friend I'm so so sorry! I had no idea Bobby was sick. I wish you would have reached to me to talk, request prayer. Bobby was a good man, Father and a wonderful husband to you. Anyone who knew you two knew his love and devotion to you. I pray Gods love and comfort in abundance to you and your family. Please be in touch when you can. I love you friend!
