Doe,My heart is heavy for you and your family. I shared the news with my family, including Clara, and she told me to tell you she sends her love. I never had the pleasure of meeting Bobby, but know from our conversations that he loves our Lord. We can be comforted in knowing he is in a place that there is no more pain, sorrow or tears and that he is waiting for you and his family. I am here if you need me, in the meantime you all will be in my every prayer. God loves you all, Ms. Doe, and so do I :o)
