On April 13, 2011, our lives changed forever. What happened, “in other places”, “to other people”, happened in our community, to a much loved and treasured member.
Holly was a bright light, to her friends and to her family, described as sweet, and funny, Holly was loved by all who knew her.
Three years has passed since Holly was taken, and on Sunday Sept 7th, 2014 what was left of her earthly body was found.
Holly is finally home, not the way we wanted, not the way we prayed endlessly to happen, but she is finally home.
The time has come for Justice.
No act on earth is as vile as the act that took this beautiful girl from us.
We all grieve for the person she would have aspire to, while those that knew and loved her grieve for the very real presence of this bright and shining individual brought to their world.
The world, both for those that knew her before and have come to know her now,
is darker because Holly Lynn Bobo is not in it.
“She is in a better place than we are.”
Her Mother stated.
That is very true. While we are trapped in a world filled with the kind of evil that took Holly from us,
Holly’s soul is free.
Fly high Holly, beyond all the pain and suffering.
You are loved, missed and remembered always.
You are in our hearts always.
Don’t grieve for me, for now I’m free
I’m following the path God has laid you see.
I took His hand when I heard him call
I turned my back and left it all.
I could not stay another day
To laugh, to love, to work, to play.
Tasks left undone must stay that way
I found that peace at the close of day.
If my parting has left a void
Then fill it with remembered joy.
A friendship shared a laugh, a kiss
Oh yes, these things I too will miss.
Be not burdened with times of sorrow
I wish you the sunshine of tomorrow.
My life’s been full, I savored much
Good friends, good times, a loved one’s touch.
Perhaps my time seemed all too brief
Don’t lengthen it now with undue grief.
Lift up your hearts and peace to thee
God wanted me now; He set me free.
RIP Holly Lynn Bobo
