  • "Im so sorry for your loss at such a young age too. I remember how Bobby Rae was every girls heart throb in school especially in grade school. I lived just down the Rd in Danforth and we rode the bus together with Konnie, Amanda, Jodi, Robert... we would all sing on the way to school in the morning. That long hair of Bobbie's always blowing in the wind. He was always kind to me, funny, and even though I moved to Oregon when I was 15, I'm positive he was still just the same. May Jehovah God comfort you in this time of loss and bring peace to your hearts knowing he's not suffering. Blessings Amy"
