Dearest Robin,
We are on the same wavelength! I remember our inseparable gang at our grandparents' home at 1604 Blvd.Salem Va.Tobie sang her latest hit song "I'm just a Country Girl" into the microphone of the tape recorder that my sister Kathy received for Christmas.Tobie and Pam also practiced their French lessons on that same tape recorder.Our eternal laughter is still an echo in my heart!!
I also remember the " drag race" from the Roanoke Airport in your Family's STATION WAGON with Tobie at the helm.And , once again, our laughter.
Our bond is an Eternal one, and nothing can deter the JOY that remains.Tobie is smiling at us.....

My cousin, Susie,

Thank you for uplifting my spirits by sending me old pictures of all of us growing up. That was a much better time. Grandma's house was the meeting place. Walks to the field for a picnic lunch. Tobie getting her drivers license, and we all took off to the airport, and went drag racing ( against our better judgment ) with a car load of nothing-better-to-do guys. She held her own. The last eight years of dark clouds and those with ulterior motives and hate are now gone. MY SISTER is in a much better place. She knows her sisters loved her.

Thank you Susie. The many memories and pictures of all of us together are priceless. I love you. πŸ’œ

I have vivid, wonderful memories of my first cousin, Tobie Anne, from a comedic childhood perspective.
In that my cousin Tobie was born within a year of my older sister Pam and the fact that I have a twin sister Kathy , we were almost inseparable in an age wherein family lived within a half hour of one another.
As children, we loved to toss green apples across a two lane highway from the front yard of our. Grandparents' house in Salem, Va.My twin sister inherited Tobie's tricycle much more modern than my own, as the one I rode had no front tire.The only downside was that my twin and I became the recipients of Tobie's and Pam's clothing including gym suits that stood out from the rest and made us " vulnerable".
The four of us attended Andrew Lewis high school in Salem , Va. including my younger cousin , Tobie's sister Robin.
Tobie Anne in high school was an avid fan of the Andrew Lewis team, the " Wolverines".
In the City of Salem archives the Andrew Lewis 1971 football team played an infamous game against E. C. Glass from Lynchburg, Va .My sisters Pam, Kathy, and I , accompanied by Tobie, rode a victory bus to and from the winning game.The Wolverines made a historic comeback from 14-0 to win the game in the last six minutes....and Tobie always radiant as we chanted.
Another classic memory is that of Tobie and Pam , in Home Economics class , baking some type of " German" cookies that were so heavy and hard that students were slamming them against surfaces to watch them shatter.
Lastly I remember Tobie and Pam running down Main St in Salem , Va.in a rally prior to a football game against Halifax and adorned as shooting comets.
The Reynolds wrap on their bodies dazzled in the lighting.And thus I remember my cousin Tobie as a dazzling humam being.She loved and gave of herself to others;and she will be greatly missed.
We take heart in the verses from 2 TI 4: 7, 8.She has indeed finished the race and kept the Faith.May she now receive the Crown that awaits her!!!

Tobie was my first cousin the daughter of my aunt Betty. Fond memories of Sunday dinners at our grandparents house. Can’t believe it happened so soon after my mother, her Aunt, passed away. Let God receive them into his holy care.

Dear Tobie,

Eight years is a long time ... Between sisters ... A lifetime. Yes, Dad's estate was a pain in the ass, and there were those who made it even more difficult, but, no matter what was said or done, I always forgave, and had hoped we could resolve it. Just know this, I'll always love you, and one day I hope to see you again. Until then, rest in peace dear sister. You are always loved and treasured. I love you πŸ’”πŸ’”πŸ’”πŸ’”πŸ’”πŸ’”β€β€β€β€β€β€

This woman loved with all her heart. In her eyes, her grandchildren couldn't do a single thing wrong. My first big memory of her was when she told me she wanted to go shopping for a wedding dress with me at some sort of crazy dragout, fight sale. I said she was a petite little thing and I wouldn't want her to get hurt. She told me, 'Shoot, girl. I can handle this! I'm scrappy.' She truly was and I will miss her with all my heart forever. RIP Momma. Take care of Bernie II and I'll try to take care of Bernie Sr.
