I just remember how her eyes lit up when she smiled. She always, always had a hug, a warmth, and a kind word… and oh how her laugh radiated. Thank you, Mrs. Buckley for always being your authentically beautiful self.

I worked with her mother, Ann Grant, for 20 years in Alvarado. Loved her like a sister. I was well acquainted with her precious family. My health prevented me from attending visitation or her funeral. Please accept my thoughts and prayers to each of you.

I worked with Bobbie at Alvarado South and my children were friends with her kids. I'm so sorry, Wendy and Bubba, that you lost your mother so early. Mindi, Tyler (Hargrove) and I have you in our thoughts and prayers. You have so many wonderful memories to cherish to help you through this tough time.
