The Anything for a Friend family has lost a great friend today. Our hearts are heavy as we have to say good-bye to Sweet Bob. He was an incredible man and has left a wonderful legacy through his children. We are so relieved that his body is out of pain and now turn our focus to the family that he had to leave behind. May God's peace fill the immense gap that has been left in many hearts this day, as the tears from heaven are a reflection of our broken hearts. Bob, you will be missed!
**If any of you have some great photos from Bob's Event, email them to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
As an organizing committee we have decided to do something special at Bob's event! We are doing a balloon launch. We are mindful of the terrible news that Bob received last week and want to help create some unforgettable memories for him and his loved ones. Imagine hundreds of balloons being released as Bob, Ingrid, and their children are being surrounded by loved ones in a moment of solidarity! You can buy your balloons in advance and send a hope filled message to be placed in the balloons or you can purchase them the night of the event. The balloons are $2 a piece and up for you generous souls! Thank you for adding to this small miracle for the Eggett's.
Please continue to express your willingness to do anything you can for Bob and Ingrid. Tell all of your friends, family, and neighbors to join you on the night of the 29th at Bob's event. Let's fill the room to the brim and over flowing!
