    My thoughts of love and prayers for the entire family; although distance has prevented us from seeing one another, I remember the great visits with Mother (Ruby Thurman) of great fondness. Childhood with our first cousins (Bobby, John, and Elaine) was a great treat—especially when we spent the night. I know Bobby will be greatly missed. May the days ahead bring joy for you as you realize no more suffering for his body. Prayers of love to all.
