I am so sorry for the loss of your loved one, but please know that he is at rest with Jesus. God gave Bobby a wonderful life, his life was complete when he became papa to Karli, Alanah and Robbie. He has no more sorrow, now pain and he rejoices in his new self. He was made whole the second that he closed his eyes.
