Inscription.  On May 2, 1984, God blessed the world with Bobbi Kristen Keller at a young age Bobbi developed the dream of becoming a whale and dolphin trainer. She began her school career here in Geneseo at age 5. After graduating from J.D. Darnall Senior High School in 2003, her journey led her to Parkland College in Champaign, Illinois, to begin classes in marine biology with plans to fulfill her dream of interacting with the dolphins. On June 25, 2003, shortly after leaving for college, Bobbi's life here on Earth was cut tragically short when she died in an auto accident just days prior to college enrollment. A beloved daughter, sister, aunt, and friend, Bobbi K. lived a life that reflected her high school motto, “Live life like there is no tomorrow.” She now enjoys a heavenly eternal life where there is no tomorrow, simply one day of glory that never ends because of her faith in Jesus Christ, this fountain does not reflect the death, but celebrates the life of Bobbi Kristen Keller and her tremendous love for these wonderful animals, the dolphins. may this memorial bring peace to all who pass by and challenge you to answer the question…
