Bobo Family: We Still Have Hope
DECATUR COUNTY, Tenn. -- For the first time since Zach Adams' indictment, Holly Bob's family releases a statement only to WBBJ 7 Eyewitness News.
In a text message, the family said, "In the recent days, it feels that everything has come against our hope and it seems that all our trust was shattered. We still have hope because of who our hope is in. Holly had that same hope and faith. Because of Jesus Christ, we will see her again. Jesus will provide the strength and grace to see us through."
Brad Moore, an associate pastor at the Bobo family church, calls the situation sad and senseless.
"They're doing like I guess any family would be at this moment that's lost a child," Moore said.
Moore went on to say, "It's not easy the wondering of why. They're dealing with it the best that they know how and that's through prayer."
Loved ones said because of Holly's faith, they're sure she is now safe. They said her faith is what gives them strength and comfort as they hope for justice.
"She was prepared to leave this life whenever that came and it just came was too soon," Moore said. "There will never be an end to their hurt, their pain to their missing her."
Lead Pastor at Corinth Baptist Church, Don Franks, said he spent most of Thursday with Dana, Karen and Clint Bobo in prayer.
Through the family's closest friends, the Bobos expressed gratitude to everyone who has said prayer for Holly and them.
