Bobby Joe,
I am in disbelief that you are no longer here! When I heard you had passed away, my thoughts immediately circled back to your family, your mamita, everyone that will love you now and forever! My memories of you always included family, parties, celebrations, gatherings. You were always so kind and giving.
Heaven has gained an Angel for certain but a void has been left here on earth amongst the people that love you the most, your family and friends…..YOU WILL BE MISSED Bobby Joe!!! May You Rest In Eternal Peace.

I’m so immensely sad you are gone, but I am also incredibly grateful for every moment I got to share with you and every moment you shared with the kids. You took the time and initiative to spend Fridays with us the kids, and continued even after Alex left. We had our own routine and it pains me to think how the kids and I are going to miss showing you movies you’ve never seen before, I won’t share another the new recipe I’m trying out for dinner, and I’m so sad I will never make you that fudge brownie cake for your birthday. But, despite all the things I will miss, the time you spent with us will forever be precious to me. I will hold every moment close to my heart. I will never forget how warm and full of love your hugs and kisses on the forehead felt. And how you took the time to show my kids the importance of respecting their mom when I was having a hard day, because you knew sometimes I needed just a little help. Because that’s the kind of man you are.

Thank you for sharing those moments with me. I love you so much and I will always miss you.

Audri, Jenn, and the boys

I am going to miss you so much Bob, I admired you so much for the person you were particularly the son you were, I can only hope that I can ever be half the amazing son you were to Tely. You were also one of the few who came to my side in one of my darkest times to tell me that I would be alright and you were right, I was so embarrassed yet you held me and lifted my spirits. I'll always remember your big ol hugs with that big make sure you ain't choking pat on the back, I wish you could give me one right now. I love you Bob and I'm missing you so much right now. See ya around
