I didn’t have an opportunity to meet Mrs. Bobo but I certainly saw amazing results of her life. I consider her daughter a dear friend of mine and in the time we were friends I saw a life of service, sacrifice and deep caring. I have to imagine that as she watched her mother, busy in so many areas, and included similar values in her life. She was a tremendous blessing to me and many others. I think of her most days and can’t help smiling as I remember the many things she tackled to make our church more beautiful, our fellowships more tasty and our children’s ministry events come together in bigger and better ways than we could have imagined. I am grateful our paths crossed and look forward to seeing her again in heaven one day. Reply to this comment

I am so sorry for your loss. May God comfort your mourning hearts. I pray that you find comfort in Revelation 21:3-5. This scripture paints a picture of a world that is very different from what we see today. A world with no more sickness, pain or death...and it is not a dream, it is a promise from God. He promises to reverse the effects of death and resurrect your precious one. You will never have to say a painful goodbye ever again!  Jw.org Reply to this comment
