Bobby Pratt was a kind, caring human being. I knew him growing up many, many years ago in Ellwood City. But my mom, Patty Lucas knew him best. They were great friends and family. He treated my mom with love and kindness and for that I will be forever grateful. My heartfelt sympathy and prayers goes to Colleen/Ray and Maryann. Since he passed away in October, I have kept his photo and newspaper writeup at my desk as a reminder of what a blessing he was to so many people and how he will truly be missed. The Lord has him now and we know he is in the best place ever. In Loving Memory...Brenda
