Charlie I am so sorry to hear of Bobby's passing. He was always so friendly to me while living in Winters all those years. He will be missed by many. Sending you healing thoughts as you and your family grieve.

I would like to offer my deepest condolences to your family. In times like these the Bible have proven to be a great source of coomfort. The Bible book of John chapter 5 verses 28 and 29 holds out the hope of a resurrection for those we have lost in death, and Joshua chapter 21 verse 45 lets us know that God fulfills his promises. I hope these Bible verses will bring your family some comfort.

Charlie and family. I am so sorry for your loss and sorry that I am out of touch with winters scene and did not make the celebration of life because his was one worth celebrating. I'll always remember his friendly smile and his making sure I could make it to my room in oakhurst way back when. My thoughts and prayers are with all of you during this heartbreaking time. If there is anything I can do please don't hesitate to call. RIP Bobby. We will miss you.
