I have fond memories growing up next door to Bobby and Bob in Newport News. Jody and I where a month apart and grew up together. We had a great childhood and we will always be close friend no matter where we are in live . I will always remember the weekends when our parents sat on Jean and Winky’s porch laughing it up while we played. I will always remember Bobby telling me to get my mom to pit cherries so that they could make cherry everything lol . I will always remember Bobby’s laugh and her sweet smile . I hope you are having a ball in heaven hanging on the porch with everyone. I will truly miss you !

I have such great memories of my Aunt Bobbie, during the Summer visits when she and Uncle Bob brought the children to visit our Grandmother Rose. My sister and I even had the good fortune to spend a visit with the family in Newport News. That was the first time I got to see the Ocean, and my first trip out of Kentucky. It was very exciting, we felt very grown up and my aunt and uncle were fun and very good hosts. I don't think I knew how to say thank you in those days, but it remains one of my best memories.
