Gary Don Hobbs, I am going to miss you and I am always going to love you. When we would celebrate a holiday with our family, you would just make jokes and everyone would laugh. I just loved it when Jake would have to drive to go get you and help you out of the car, walk up the stairs and help you get into the house and help you get settled. I will never forget this time. Thanksgiving Day my mom was having a dinner for all of us. I walked over to hug you and I noticed that the right side of your face, on your cheek was bleeding. I asked you if you would like a band-aid. Mamaw insisted that you have a one. So I walk down the hall into the closet to find a band-aid. I had found one, but it was bright orange. You just didn't care what color it was. I put the band-aid on and I remember that I said "Now we really can't loose you." Gary you were the strongest man that I knew. You were put through so much and you still came out alright. You always said that you would make it to Laruens wedding and Jake's graduation. You saw Lauren take a huge step and just because you won't physically be there to see it, but you will also see Jake finish High School. They both know that you will be proud of them. We all love and miss you so much Mr.Hobbs. Take care of Micheal Sawyer, Jessie Yocum, Russell Yocum and George Sweetser, alright. R.I.P 03/04/18❤️❤️
