Kay, The Memorial Service for Bobby, was truly a Beautiful Celebration of his Life. From the letter that you had written as well as his friend, the songs sang were all so touching, and the numerous friends and family that attended, it really made you know exactly what kind of guy Bobby was. I was just " In Awe of " how many men stood up that had fished and hunted with him. He was well loved my many. The full Military and Masonic part of the ceremony was just as special. Bobby will be dearly missed, but remember he will live on in your hear forever.
Love you,
Jacque

Kay, The service for Bobby was so beautiful and fitting. I did not know Bobby was a Marine, but to know who he was that is surely not surprising. It is so hard to believe he is gone. I saw him last at Marks funeral. I remember alot of laughs and good times. Bobby was such a great host! I remember his love for his family and little Kaylan, for cooking and for the outdoors. I mostly remember his love for you and yours for him- a gift from God. Bobby will live on in your heart Kay. I love you sista. Know that you are in my thoughts and prayers for many months to come.
