    • Hello Dan and Mercedes,

      Odd meeting you here but I got to met you again .. please email me when possible.

      Thank you,

  6. I know words can not express your loss. But I have seen the strength and love you have in your heart and that will help you through the days. May the Lord be with you and your family. I greatly admire you, Bobbie, and you have my greatest sympathy.

  7. Wish I had known. Gene and Bobbie baptized my precious granddaughter, Jasmine Mott, 18 years ago at a church in Speegleville when the then pastor at First Methodist refused to. After the baptism I was glad the two of you performed the ceremony–you both sang and the whole thing was beautiful and meaningful. I will always remember his beautiful voice and wonderful spirit. Bobbie, you and Gene are forever in my heart.
