    Rob, Susan, Kate and Paul: May God give you comfort in knowing that your beloved Mom/Grandma is in heaven with her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ – the one she worshiped and worked for her entire life. Her work here on earth is done, but I am sure she has many tasks in heaven to do. We give praise to his Holy name that she is now in heaven and has no pain, illness or suffering. It is the ones left here that struggle. God be with each one of you as you come to grips with this now. Please also let Mr. Hogsette know our hearts ache for him.

    Dear Harold and family, so sorry to hear that Bobbie passed away. One thing we know for sure, without a doubt, she is with her Lord and Savior. She was such an inspiration to Janice and I and our children as you were also. We were so blessed to have her as a friend during our adventures around the world throughout the years. We were just looking at a picture of us with you all during Bible study in the wadi. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. Love, Janice, Larry, Barry, Sherri, and Russ.

    Harold and family. I was so saddened to hear of bobbies passing. She was such a great friend and neighbor here in jacksonville. She’ll be missed. We had talked on phone just few months ago and kept in touch via email. Know she’s in heaven with my mother where there’s no pain or tears. God loves you and so do I.
