Bobby, I’ll miss you but never forget you. Every time I had the pleasure to spend some time with you always made me happy. I’m so glad you spent time with me when I visited you a couple of years ago and told me about some adventures you encountered with my mother and dad. To the family Bobby was a pleasure to have known throughout my life.
