Dearest Aunt Lola, Cousin Bart, Cousin Katie Sue and husband, Craig, Cousin Jake and fiancé Katie, and Cousin Luke,
There are truly no words that we can say to you that are descriptive or adequate enough to express to you how we feel about the huge void that Uncle Bobby's passing has left in all of our lives. He was definitely such a well-respected backbone of the Hardin community, as was witnessed by the outpouring of love and respect from the community of friends and family that turned out for his visitation on the afternoon/evening of Monday, Sept. 25th, as well as those who attended his "Home going" services, this afternoon (Tuesday, Sept. 26th) and he lived his life in such an exemplary (ADJECTIVE : Serving as a desirable model; representing the best of its kind) fashion, that anyone would be hard pressed to find anything negative or derogatory to say about him. He served his church and community in such a profound way, that it made us all so proud to be related to him. We were so very humbled and honored that the family requested us to sing 2 of Uncle Bobby's favorite songs that we had sung to him on the night of July 3, 2017, which, little did we know at the time, would turn out to be his last 4th of July Rawlinson Family Reunion. I was also honored to have gotten to read the prepared statement that chronicled the very beginnings of just how that Rawlinson Family Reunion began. The 4th of July celebration will obviously never be the same without Uncle Bobby's "physical" presence there, although we know that he will always be there "in spirit."
May the peace of our Lord & Savior, Jesus Christ, which passeth all understanding, bring you all comfort during this most difficult of times for our family, but know and rest in the blessed assurance, that Uncle Bobby is now where he lived his whole life here on this earth to ultimately achieve ... "That Heavenly Home"
With Our Sincerest Love, Prayers, Blessings And Condolences,
Cousin Diane & Rayburn ~
