Renee & Whitney
I am so sorry to hear about Bobby's passing and want you both to know I have & will be praying for you as I know how it feels to lose your dad and Renee I know the months ahead are gonna be hard but take comfort in knowing that you guys had a wonderful life together. I always remember Bobby as my strong, silent, wise big brother, artsy too as I remember one time he snitched my Easy Bake Oven pans and painted them..ha ha...not sure if mom & dad wouldn't keep him supplied in canvas or maybe he just liked to add a little color to everything! He painted his closet doors once too which probably didn't go over well with mom & dad. I know he had a wonderful life with you guys and I use to tell him thanks for all the photos as I got to travel to places I will never go thru him. Thank you for loving & making my big brother happy!
