So sorry to hear of the passing of Bobby and David... My prayers are with each and everyone. I guess it's true people can die of broken hearts. God knew they still needed each other and that is an amazing love...

Bobbie was one of the kindest, most caring women that I've ever known. She treated me like a sister instead of a sister-in-law. She loved my brother so very much and I don't know how to go on without her. She treated all of us Widener's like we were family. I loved her so very much! Praying for all of the children!! I love you all!!!
