My prayers are with the family at this time. Had the pleasure of meeting Bob with Shirley at the Carolina Diner. A wonderful man. Lol I'm known to him as Bingo Debbie. We were planning on eating there again when he got better. I guess you wanted to have meals with your sweet wife. I'll take a rain check till we meet in heaven.

I was so sorry to read of the passing of Bobby. I remember taking my boys to visit him and Sue years ago. Such a wonderful couple. He always praised his children when we talked. He will be missed but he is now with Sue. Praying for peace and comfort.
