We were so heartbroken to hear of Bobby's passing. He was always such a special man to Scott and I. We always loved running into him and Naomi when we would be in Brunswick. He always had a hug for me and Scott. All of you will be in our thoughts and prayers during this time of sadness and grief. We love you all.
