So sorry for your loss! Prayers for Bobby Lee and Carla, Sherry and Cindy. We know he’s in a much better place and probably up there walking around talking to all of his family and friends that have gone on before him with that beautiful smile of his! He was surely a wonderful man and I know you all will greatly miss him! Prayers for each and every one of you all! May God bless!
