I just want to say how sorry I am for your deep loss. I have known the Gillespie family all my life. my mom Hazel was very good friends with Bobby also my aunt Linda and Bobby.You all are part of our family and will always be! My heart goes out to Horace, Dana, Brad Carolyn, and all of Bobby's grandchildren and all her friends as well. I would like to share a comforting scripture with you at 2 Corinthians 1:3,4 'Praise be the God and father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the father of tender mercies and the God of All comfort who comforts Us in all our trials so that we may be able to comfort others in any sort of trial with the comfort that we receive from God. You're all in my prayers.

From the words of Tammy Trents song “Open Arms” Welcome home My mercy's waiting. Welcome home To open arms. When I first came into this family you welcomed me with open arms. You loved me as if I were born into the family. As time and years passed we shared laughter, tears, happy times, and sad times. I will never forget when rough waters tossed me about how you and Horace both reached down with open arms and said welcome home. You cared for me loved me in through some of the darkest months of my life you gave me light, joy and something to look forward to but most importantly you always have love. Today we remember you honor you and send out love with you upon angels wings we know this song rings true and that the father has said welcome home Ashe waited with open arms! Always in my heart Tony
