Thank you for signing James Robert English's Guestbook
My heartfelt sympathy goes out to your family. Be assured that God knows your pain and already has arrangements in place to make everything right again (Isaiah 26:19; John 5:28,29). Rely on Him in prayer during this difficult time, for He will give you peace of mind and "the power beyond what is normal" to cope (Philippians 4:6,7; 2 Corinthians 4:7). Take care.

Damn it Bobby! was what I began calling him and he just called me Damn it! I told him a story one time while waiting on him at the Riverview Cafe and he never forgot it and that story is what prompted the two of us to begin calling each other Damnit! Bobby was a great and kind man and I will miss him. Rest in peace, Damn it!
