Uncle Bobby I have always thought the world of you and Aunt Margie. You were always the same every time I saw you never different. You were kind, caring, sweet, loving, funny, with such an amazing heart and soul! You were also the type of person that never judged, or had anything unkind to say to anyone, ( or as I have always thought ) , you never had any negativity in you! This is just a few of your characteristics and qualities that made you the wonderful and amazing man you were.

Some of the things I loved and admired the most about you were : Your smile, you were always smiling and it was always that same ole smile, filled with so much happiness and joy, the one that only you could have! Also the one thing that always stood out to me ( even when I was a lot younger ) and I admired so much about you, was just the simple way I could always see and tell by you just being who you were, that you truly loved your family and life, and was thankful for it all, and the simple fact you never changed, you were always that same, kind, caring, loving, smiling, funny Uncle Bobby.

I know without a doubt that you made such an impact in this world and touched so many lives and hearts of everyone that was blessed to know you.
Love Always, Melinda.

Praying and thinking of all the family, friends, and especially you Aunt Margie at this very difficult time in the loss of a very special and wonderful man, as God called home one of the best there was....
