have a memory or condolence to add?


December 1, 2018

Just heard of Bobby ' s passing. He taught me to be an electrician and I'm still in the electrical trade because of his patience with me. Most people would not have had patience with a "dummy" like I probably seemed at 18 years old, but Bobby went the extra mile with me many, many times. He was a Special Person in my life, and I've thought about him many times through the years. Though we lost contact many years ago, I hope to meet him again on the other side. God bless his memory. Also to all his children , friends and family, may God bless you and be with you. If I would have known about it earlier, I'm sure I would have tried to be there at his
"Celebration". My heart is saddened, but I hope to see him again. Just wished I would have been able to tell him how much I appreciated him for all he done for me. God bless all.
