I called Brother Bobby for prayer just yesterday. The Lord put him on my heart several days ago, and I kept forgetting to call. When I called, and the phone line said disconnected, I felt an immediate worry in my heart. He became like a father figure to me over the past several years. We would pray and he would talk to me for hours. He prayed for my marriage, my children and more. And I remember he asked me to send a picture of myself and the kids to him. The Lord would speak to him and I would sit in awestruck wonder listening to him talk about his life and the fond memories he had. He will sorely be missed. I'm sad I never even had a picture of him to know what he looked like, but I would envision him as a sweet little man with a big heart. He would always talk about his visions from the Lord, and how he was believing God for long life & his mansion in heaven. I believe he is now in that place with God enjoying the fruits of a life well lived. If anyone has a picture of Brother Bobby, please reach out to me. God bless his family.

Bobby was a friend of many years, a unique man of God. He had a very close relationship with God, often sharing with me what he felt God was telling him.
If any reading this also had conversations with Bobby, you know how he would pray for you and then with a shout, exclaim, "Fill him now Holy Ghost, Fill him now Holy Ghost"!
I will miss Bobby, but he is certainly now with his Maker.

I remember when we were little
We would hit tin cans with rocks for fun, we would laugh at our socks with holes all in them! Bob was a good brother and it hurts that I can't be there for he's funeral but I know we will all be together again one day! I Love You Bob

I have so many wonderful memories
Of Uncle Bob through out the years but my favorite one is when I was a kid and uncle Bob took me out to the shop so I could watch him work, I was amazed at the big machines and how they made covers for furniture, I could have sat there for hours watching! From that day forward every time I visited I spent more time in the shop than I did in the house!
I'm really going to miss seeing uncle Bob when I go home for a visit and I'm gonna miss talking & singing to him on the phone but I know in my heart he's in a better place!
I Will Always Miss You Uncle Bob
Till We Meet Again, Love You!

I use to love to go visit uncle bob's house when I was little, it was the biggest treasure hunt I had ever been on, going from room to room so excited because everything there had a story and I knew before I left from that house uncle Bob would always give me my own little treasure to take home with me!
I'm so glad I got to spend time with him 3 yrs ago when I visited Bama, he was one of the most giving, kindest men I have ever met, he made this world a better place!
Uncle Bob you will be greatly missed but we all know your dancing around Rejoicing in Heaven!
We Love You Uncle Bob💝
