Bobby Michaels' Memorial Celebration Service

jesusDear Precious Friends,

We have so been comforted and moved by your expressions of love for Bobby and our family during these past weeks!  We would love to include you in our plans to remember Bobby's life and what he meant to all of us by requesting your presence at the Memorial Celebration Service in honor of our dear husband, father, friend, mentor, teacher and singer, Bobby Michaels, on Tuesday, April 14th, at 2:00pm. 

The service will be held at Christ Fellowship Church, located at 5343 Northlake Blvd, Palm Beach Gardens, FL 33418. 

The Musicianaries' office has arranged for a special rate of $89/night at the Hilton Garden Inn, Palm Beach Gardens for our out-of-town guests.  The hotel is located at 3505 Kyoto Gardens Drive, Palm Beach Gardens, FL 33410.  Their telephone number is 561.694.5833.  Please tell them this is under the "Group Name" -- Bobby Michaels.  If you have any questions or problems please contact Ellie Wyatt at the hotel. 

We are planning a reception after the Memorial Service and request that RSVP's be made ONLY to John Clark at john@musicianaries.org, so we can get an accurate count for the catering. 

In lieu of flowers, a bereavement fund has been established to help support Bobby's wife.  Those wanting to contribute to the fund may send a gift to Lee Michaels, PO Box 31868, Palm Beach Gardens, FL 33420.

Again, we appreciate your love, support and friendship!  It would be an honor to see you there to celebrate our Papa's life with us!  May the Lord richly bless you!

Rachel Esterhuyse and Jeff Gordley

Bobby and Lee's children

Thank you so much for this update. I was on my way to work when I heard the news on RMB. They were playing a tribute to Bobby and then some of his music. I was in shock as all where. Our prayers of strength for his family, even though he is home with his Father...the multitudes that were touched will truly feel the loss. We will also be praying for his ministry and that of his wonderful family.
We were just remembering times on stage at Calvary with Bobby singing with our band! Such a special blessing it was....and very humbling! We will never forget.....
