Kenny, Karen, and family,
I’m so sorry I didn’t know about Bobbi’s passing in time to attend the funeral. Bobbie had a special place in my heart. When we first moved to NLR, and didn’t know many people, she invited me to attend a school function with her. I immediately loved her. She had the most brilliant smile on her beautiful face every time I saw her after that. She had the sweetest, most gentle, soft way about her that it was just natural to love her.
God bless you as you grieve for the loss of your precious wife and mom.

Kenny and Family, I first met Bobbie in 1946 when we both started 1st grade at Thornton. This class remained together through graduation, give or take one or two. The girls were always together as a group. When you found one, you found us all! After graduation we all remained in touch. Then, 30 years ago we started having reunions every year and when we all got together it was as if no time had separated us. Bobbie Jo was loved by all and it goes without saying how very much she will be missed! I will see her again someday when we will renew our friendship! Earnestly praying for you and the family for God's comfort. Love you all! Vaughnda Lee Class of '58 THS

The family has my prayers for peace and comfort from our loving God during this time of grief. I went to school with Bobbie Jo (Pat was in my class). She was a beautiful and gentle person and loved by many. I know she will be remembered with love and respect.

To this precious family whom I treasure, I told y’all this but I will always remember that every time I would greet Ms Bobbie, she would look at you and grasp my hands then that beautiful smile would spread across her entire face and she always made you feel so important. My heart grieves with you but know that on that day, she will be waiting to grasp your hands and smile that incredible smile and say... ‘ welcome home, what took you so long?’ I love you all and my prayers stay with you, Karen Kay Aka ‘Kookie’

My sweet precious momma! My life will never be the same without you!
I have a huge hole in my heart today that no one will ever replace!
You were the best momma a girl could ever ask for!
You taught me everything I know, except how to live without you!
Momma, please be our angel and watch over us daily- we will all need you!
Please stay close by our sides and give us hints that you are there!
Heaven sure gained the best! I will miss and love you forever! ❤️ Karen

So many good memories dating way back to the early 60's when Bobbie and I roomed together in Little Rock in our single days. My love and prayers go out to all the family. May you all find some peace in knowing that she is no longer in pain and is in such a better place.
