Love recipient
Betsy & Leonard

They need love because..
Betsy and Leonard lost their 2 sons within 3 weeks of each other. Justin Cobb passed away unexpectedly on September 9, 2017, his forty-third birthday while jogging. What was most important to Justin was his family. He was an adoring husband and a loving father to his two sons, Houston and Witten. He loved nothing more than supporting, cheering, defending, coaching, teaching, and guiding them through example. Justin showed his children, friends, and all who knew him what love in action looks like. He was the first to volunteer, the first to step up, the one that stuck to his word, and offered support, prayers, and love to anybody in need. Then, on September 29th, Brent and family were in a violent collision near Montgomery, Al. He was killed in the collision...his wife and two sons were hospitalized. He lived a life of dedication and devotion, a life firmly grounded in his walk with Christ and made manifest in the generosity and loyalty he gave to his relationships with his family and friends. Brent was deeply committed to his wife Catherine Gilliam Cobb and their sons James Benjamine and Matthew Brent, who will be forever filled with Brent's steadfast and sturdy presence. His life was one of discipline and purpose, balanced with compassion and a fun loving, upbeat, optimistic spirit.

This is the kind of love they need..
Definitely words of encouragement and compassion. They are a religious family and now that the holidays have passed, I would imagine reality is just starting to set in, which is why I believe they could use some love. Maybe a book like Jesus Calling, or a similar daily devotional.

In a sympathy card to these family friends, I emphasized what a quality life these two young men lived while here on Earth, just too short. I also encouraged the parents, grandparents, aunts, and uncles to cherish the good times and remember what good people they raised.

Some insight on them:
This is an amazing family, deeply rooted in community and family values and they've been blindsided with grief. Don't know any favorites... kids are young and involved in sports. Thanks for any love you can send their way!
