,I'm so sorry to hear about Bobbie passing. Mom has been upset. We both prayed for your family last night. She is just preparing a way for our coming. Mom so enjoyed talking to her on the phone. They were friends for so many years. Our love and prayers are being sent from our family. We tried to contact Chuck but, it says there phone has been disconnected? Mom would like to talk to him.
