    I just can't believe it.Bobbie was outside picking-up leaves.He watched his neighbor pull his car into his garage,pull the hose into the garage.Neighbor went over to Bobbie and thanked him for being such a good friend.
    Bob got thinking,he walked over to the neighbor's garage,heard the car running,he ran around the neighborhood for help.Bobbie and another neighbor went into this guy's house and stopped him from killing himself.What a story isn't it?

    Bless him for helping a soul in need. Perhaps now he will get the help he needs.

    Bobbie is a wonderful man and he was in the right place at the right time! It makes you wonder what his neighbor was going through...hopefully he can get the help he needs to see life is worth living.

    Well looks like the neighbor was off his meds.He's Bi-polor?
    My son-in-law works for the Sheridan Police Department and is trained to do this kind of thing,but he was off duty and doing his everday thing and wasn't in his police mode.

    Bobbie is truly a hero. I think he's one of the Earth Angels-he was in that place at the right time for a reason. Depression is a horrible illness. Thank you and bless you, Bobbie.

    I have only one son-in-law.I've known him since he was in his teens and before he was even dating my daughter.
    I'm the only one who still calls him Bobbie.

    I think that shows what a close bond you have with him that you can call him Bobbie when nobody else does. You must be so proud.

    The neighbor came home today.I was just thinking,if Bobbie hadn't gone over when he did or hadn't bothered and they had found him dead.Bobbie wouldn't forgive himself.

    So sad, but thank god for your Son-in-law. I hate that there is so much sadness in the world; my only wish is that those who are sad can see the happiness as well. Thank you for sharing this story.

    Way to go Bobbie you are a hero to me just for paying attention---so many people don't. Said a prayer for your neighbor that he can get help he needs and that he protect your Bobbie and watch over him.

    I'd say your son was this man's angel. I bet his family is grateful. Poor man must have been mentally suffering from something. You can be very very proud of your son, I am!Hugs to him, that had to be hard.
