Bobbie and Don sat behind us at church. Bobbie always talked with my son Henry about his activities! We always looked foward to her and Don's smiling faces and Sunday morning greetings. She will be missed!!!!

Bobbie, and Don sat in front of us at church every Sunday. They brought a smile to us every time we saw them, always holding hands. They have been an inspiration to us, we hoping to be that much in love at their age. We will miss Bobbie, and will pray for Don and his family. She's in good hands. Dennis & Donna O'Shaughnessy

I know you'll all miss her so much; I'm very sorry. You always spoke so highly of her and it's obvious that she was a blessing to your family. She will bring a bright light with her on this next part of her journey.
