    Greg and I are so sorry for your loss. We know it’s been so very hard these last few years, and we want to celebrate his life and ministry. God used him in so many ways to bring His love and light to this world. What an awesome legacy for all of you! May God’s peace, comfort, and strength be yours now and in the days to come, and may you rest knowing Bobby is with the Lord and seeing the face of God.

    Decided I would speak of one of my favorite memories of granddaddy today. It’s not the first but the most precious to me. I was sitting with my husband and his family at church and grandaddy was preaching on salvation.I felt like he was talking to no one else but me that day. I felt my heart breaking and I was shaking mike took my hand and granddaddy walked down from the pulpit and whispered to me “He is just waiting to hear from you.” Glenda put her arms around me also. I felt myself being called from within and I went up to the alter. That began my new life in God’s hands. I had many around me that day, but he spoke to my soul that day and I will never forget that he helped along with the rest of the family bring me to God and I can never thank him enough, or thank God enough for sending his son to have that chance.

    Michael Ogre Price Thinking if how awesome it is that I’m part of that experience, baby. Thank you. But You will be in a room full of people just like you for the next couple of days. Jesus died on a cross for our sins to pave a way for us to reach his Father and without him we would never earn another way to Him. But without Granddaddy, how many of us would have found our way to Jesus? How many souls would be here alone in the dark without this man’s guidance? I know mine would. Thank you, Granddaddy, for being my Way to the Light. I love you, Baby, thank you for helping me express this thought.

    Yesterday my great grandfather passed away. I’m glad that he is finally free of this world and this life and that he gets to rejoin his wife in Heaven, but I will admit that I’ll miss him a whole bunch. I can’t honestly remember a time when I had met him without his Alzhiemers, but I can admit that I remember going to see him for his birthday and for christmas and I remember how happy he would get after saying prayer. Even though most memories left his mind due to the illness he never once forgot how to pray and he never forgot his wife. That is true love, and I believe that he is up there hugging Nana with all his might and they are watching over us. I love you Granddaddy may you rest in peace in the hands of our savior.

    My great-grandfather passed yesterday, and I know that Nana has been fussing with him since he got there for making her wait so long. I am glad I got to say goodbye, and I am glad that he is somewhere he can be way more comfortable than he has been for a while here.

    Glenda & Pam, I am so sorry for your loss. Your dad and mom too were such special people…always made me feel so loved. I treasure all the times we were able to serve the Lord together and spend time with them when they would stay with my mom and dad. We lost mom last year in August and when I think of her I know she must be having a great time in the Lord with all those she loved. Your families will be in my prayers that God would grant you strength for the coming days and comfort you when you grieve.

    Brother Bobby and Sister Annette were friends with my parents, John and Rose Smith. We spent many times together as I grew up. Church services, dinners, vacations. I am so blessed to have known him. He was an inspiration and great example of a Christian man who loved the Lord. One thing I will never forget…..we were visiting at their home in Hendersonville and he poured a cup of coffee out of the coffee maker and directly drank it…..steam rolling out the top of the cup. I was amazed!!
