We are forever grateful. Also, many thanks of gratitude to the Rev. Laura Gronberg and the entire Second Congregational Church family for holding all of us in their loving prayers.

They were like angels on Earth. The Hospice House as well for providing a safe environment during Bobbi's very last day of life here on Earth. Bobbi died peacefully with dignity and grace just as she lived her life. She was a beautiful woman who always made an elegant entrance wherever she went. Special thank you also to Kaitlyn at Weir funeral home for preparing Bobbi for her final grand entrance. She looked stunning and the family is sure everyone's heads turned as Bobbi entered the Pearly Gates of heaven. We only hope Jack was ready and waiting and had "fixed himself" for her arrival! Due to the limitations of COVID-19, a private burial took place and the family looks forward to a Celebration of Bobbi's life this spring.
