Geraldine, you and your family, has always been like a 2nd family to me. When Bobby died, it hurt nearly as bad as when my Daddy died. They were so much alike that they could have been brothers. I loved Bobby like another father. And, you have been like a 2nd mother to me. You have always been there in my life. I can't remember a time, good or bad, that you and your family wasn't around. Holly, you are the little sister I never had. I know how you feel right now. In fact, I was the exact same age when my Daddy died. I love you, and am always here for you, your Mama, and Bryan.

Geraldine, Holly and the rest of the family, I was so sorry to hear about Bobby! I saw him not long ago at the circus in UP, and he was the same as always, just a regular, down-to-earth good person. I know you will miss him, but just lean on Jesus, and he will get you through this. You are in my thoughts and prayers.
