    Nancy,
    All too often, it now seems that we hear of a family member or a dear friend who has been called and answers the call of Our Dear Lord. I was totally saddened when I was told that Bobby had passed away. He will be sorely missed by those of us who he had a friendship with. Once a friendship was established, with Bobby, it was forever.
    Please accept our condolences, Carol and I will keep you and your family in our prayers.
    God Bless,
    Earl Bradford & Carol Robinson
