Celebrating the life of Bobby Abbott, Sr.
Thank you for signing Bobby Abbott, Sr.'s Guestbook
We are so sorry to learn about the death of Bobby Ray Abbott, Sr. I can tell from just the well chosen select words he loved the outdoors, and enjoyed God's creation to the full. Wouldn't it be nice to see him enjoy once again his time on the Edisto River. We all lose dear loved ones in death, but the Bible holds out hope that are dear loved ones can and will live again, John 5:28,29, and then add that to the promise of God ending all things that cause pain and suffering, what a joyous time that will be! I hope these scriptures and others will provide you comfort as it has me. My sincerest condolences.
