I personally did not know your Bobby, but my sister was his homeroom teacher while he was attending HHS. She spoke so highly of him, and it is evident that he was a wonderful person. You and your family have been great witnesses throughout your ordeal and have touched many including myself. Please know that you are in my prayers, and I hope I get to meet Bobby one day "above".

I am so, so sorry about Bobby. He seemed like a great kid and I have known all of you guys since I started St. Joe 21 years ago. So sorry I can't be there for you in person, but things with St.Joe are still too fresh for me. I just wanted you to know that I have been praying and praying for Bobby.

From: Diana and Dan Dalton    06/19/2007 02:36 PM

I wanted to tell you about the last time I spoke with Bobby. It was about a year and a half ago and I was teasing him and trying to encourage him to come back and do children's theatre. He smiled that shy and genuine smile of his and answered politely that he'd think about it. Of course, I knew by then that his destiny was sport, but I also could see in his eyes an appreciation for all that life could offer, including the arts. He had a lovely voice and a gentle way with people. You raised an extraordinary young man, who obviously touched so many people's lives. There are no words to really express what his loss means, but we wanted you to know that our prayers are with you. Please know that Bobby will never be forgotten.

My heart goes out to the family and friends of Bobby. I am a graduate of Marshall University and I have been following the story from day 1 and I prayed for the best for Bobby. I could tell he was a man who loved everything in life and now he is uo in heaven looking down on the world giving his comfort to his family and friends. May God be with everyone who knew him.

From: Michael & Leigh Ann Hornbuckle    06/18/2007 08:38 AM

I never knew your son, but my parents, Chuck and Vicki Hanshaw know of you all, and I wanted to send my sincere gratitude for your loss. I hear he was a remarkable young man, and that he not only blessed his family with his smile and love, but all his friends and teachers that knew him. I hope and pray you find comfort from the Lord in your time of loss. Always, Martha
From: Martha Hanshaw Pumphrey    06/18/2007 08:38 AM

My thoughts and prayers have been with all the families involved in this tragic accident since I first learned of the news. I think often of how strong your family and the others must be to continue through such a difficult time. Be strong for each other and know that these two boys will never be forgotten. I pray that your family and the Withers family find strength in the Lord and understand that your sons have succeeded in their journeys in life so well what takes the rest of us much longer to accomplish. God judges character and your children were chosen because they did what they were sent here to do. Be proud of that and understand the joy they must be feeling now with Our Saviour. May God be with you and know that our community is also with you.
From: The Ward Family    06/18/2007 08:38 AM

Melanie, I am so very sorry for your tremendous loss....I will always remember Bobby swing dancing and singing and loving every minute of it.

Please know that you are in our prayers and have been every day and night since the accident.
