  6. It was a great joy for Leon and me to be reunited with Bobbie just recently. I always enjoyed her smile and her conversation. We recalled enjoying singing with her on a return trip from a retreat in East Texas. She knew the gospel hymns by heart. The sweet reunion with Bobbie was short lived, but how blessed we were to have had it.

  7. Mom, I miss you already but am so thankful that GOD has taken you out of your pain & suffering. You and I have had many talks about this day and you would be very please with us. No more worries, Mom. I love you very much!
    Always in my heart,
    Shelby
