April, Chad and Colin,
Both your mother and father were godly people and great examples of a good Christian. Bobbie and Russell always had a smile and greeted newcomers at church. Bobbie always had a great fashion sense and looked beautiful all the time. I will never forget your father’s sense of humor. They were both very special people. I will be praying for all of you.
