Pat: So sorry to read of Bobby's passing in today's paper. He was a great guy and provided alot of things to a huge number of people. I'll always remember his kindness and generosity to Raggedy Grass, and the good times we had, especially in Berlin with you & Bobby and the group. I guess you know Terry & Grady have passed on years ago and I'm told Lee is not in good health. Charlie is in Dallas, and joins Nancy & me in wishing you our sincere sympathies on the loss of your special guy. Tom

Dear Aunt Pat,
We will always treasure the memories we have of spending time with you and Uncle Bob, from serving barbecue to family visits. Uncle Bob was a wonderful person to be around. We always enjoyed his company. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.

Dear Aunt Pat,
I am so sad to hear of Bobby' s passing. I have fond memories of your wedding day and being your flower girl with Clifford as ring bearer. Whenever I think of you and Bobby, the first thought that comes to mind is sitting on Lucia and Regina's screened porch at their Rehoboth house, watching you and Bobby holding hands on romantic evening strolls down the sidewalk. You and Bobby always seemed more like newlyweds than a long married couple. Bobby had a vivacious personality and I admired his entrepreneurial spirit. He was a fabulous cook and I cherish my memories of family reunions we all enjoyed at your house throughout the years..and Bobby's delicious cooking.
Though it is so sad, he is relieved of his pain. Bobby is alive and whole in spirit and I believe he will be watching over you, Pat.
May these thoughts and all the prayers of family and friends bring you peace and comfort in your sorrow.
Niece Karen, husband John, and son Greg.
