I don't know how I ended up looking at your pictures when I was searching craigs list but I did. Your site and your beautiful tribute to your husband and father and paw-paw brought joy to me today when my daddy is on my mind and I was missing him. His name was Bobby Combs (ACE) AND HE WAS ROBBED AT HIS PAWN SHOP 8-11-2003 AND SHOT AND PASSED 3 MONTHS LATER. IN A MOMENT LIFE AS I KNEW CHANGED AND IT WOULD NEVER BE THE SAME. HE WAS BORN JAN 21, 1947 AND HE ENJOYED LIFE JUST LIKE MR WATKINS SEEMED TO IN ALL THE PICTURES AND HE WAS LOVED BY MY MOTHER AND ME AND MY BROTHER AND HIS GRANDDAUGHTERS. MY OLDEST TURNED 21 1-13-2008 AND THEY ALL MISS HIM DEARLY AND I REALLY MISS MY DADDY AS I KNOW YOU ARE MISSING YOUR LOVED ONE. GOD ALWAYS GIVES US WHAT WE NEED JUST WHEN WE NEED IT. I COULDN'T QUITE PICTURE MY DADDY'S FACE TO DAY OR HEAR HIS VOICE AS I REMEMBERED UNTIL I SAW YOUR PICTURES AND THE SMILE MR WATKINS ALWAYS HAD ON HIS FACE AND SAW HOW MUCHED HE LOVED HIS FAMILY AND LIFE. AND I ONCE AGAIN COULD SEE MY DADDY SMILE AND LAUGH AND I COULD PICTURE HIM WALKING ME DOWN THE ISLE JUST LIKE IT WAS YESTERDAY NOT 22 YEARS AGO. SO THANK YOU FOR SHARING YOUR STORY AND YOUR LOVED ONE AND MAY GOD BE WITH EACH OF YOU AS YOU CONTINUE YOUR JOURNEY HERE AND GIVE YOU THE COMFORT AND STRENGTH THAT YOU'LL NEED, THAT WE ALL WILL NEED UNTIL WE ARE ALL TOGETHER AGAIN IN OUR REAL HOME HEAVEN. GOD BLESS YOU.
