Summer memories are kept in my heart of family vacations to Accomac, Virginia when we visited with Uncle Herman, Aunt Margaret and all the family there. Remembering Cousin Bobby, just like his brothers, to have always been a gentleman and so very kind. We lift up all the family in prayer during this time and considering the days ahead; that you would be comforted and strengthened by God's Holy Spirit.

Submitted in the Love of Christ our King,
Robert and Angelle (Angie) Titus
