One of my earliest memories is of me walking behind him with my hands stuffed in his back pockets. I was probably around 3 or 4 years old. He was my uncle and always made me feel special. Just hearing his name, Bobby, would make me smile and it still does. He was always smiling, joking, telling stories, full of mischief and I loved him. He worked hard for his family and he was so proud of his three kids and all those "babies". I am so thankful that he got to spend the last years of his life surrounded by and cared for by his family. Watching the grandbabies play and interacting with them was so special for him. I can only imagine what a grand time he is having now with the love of his life, his mama and daddy, and all those brothers and sisters. What a reunion! Rest in peace my sweet uncle. I will see you soon.
