Today We Mourn With A Fellow Blogger And His Family

May 22, 2008

His Blog is entitled, “Out Here Hope Remains”, and today that hope is anchoring a family who is going through a parents worst nightmare, the loss of their son. John Robert Dobbs was about to graduate from High School, but a graduation to glory took precedent over his earth one. Here is John in his own words as he speaks about the loss of his son. 

“This is a day of intense pain and emptiness that begins a long journey through the darkness of loss. Maggy and I have lived ever parent’s nightmare … the loss of our eighteen year old son, John Robert. Gregarious and compassionate, John Robert has had enormous influence in his short life. The details of his passing are unimportant when compared to the beauty and joy that his life has brought to our family. This loss will live with our hearts forever. I hope and pray in time that the memories of John Robert will spread a shadow over the hurt we now feel.”

Would you join with us as we mourn and pray with this wonderful family?
