Was so sorry to hear the news. Bobbie always spoke so highly of him during any of our stitching retreats. You are in my prayers.
My deepest sympathy for your loss. May Jehovah, the God of all comfort, strengthen and comfort you with His promise to end all suffering, including death. (Rev. 21:3-5; 2Cor. 1:3) Peace to you during this difficult time.
