    Ron, I celebrate and admire the amazing marriage and love affair you had with Bobbie. It’s very rare to see such a perfect marriage. Although her physical body is no longer here, I have no doubt her love for you will last forever. My heart is sad you’ve lost your best friend, but my soul is happy you met the love of your life.
