Bobby....you & your family were the big family I never had & always wanted. You were part of my life in my teen years & beyond. I will always hold the memories we shared close to my heart. From our first meeting to the last time seeing you, it was like no time had passed. We were just a bit older & grayer, but I still felt t he kinship of a brother. I wish I could have been there to tell you farewell my friend. But just know you'll be very missed here on the planet, and I'm sure wherever your spirit is, it's shining brightly. All my love to Desiree, your brothers & sisters, & the whole family. R.I.P my brother!

Pa Bob, do you remember that night I cut your hair? I don't remember why but we were laughing so hard that I couldn't hold the clippers straight. But I do remember you & Des telling me DO NOT CUT THAT BEARD! We always laugh like that when together. Not because I'm a funny person though, more like funny looking. Anybody fortunate enough to be in your presence was laughing & smiling. Even if things may not of been going your way that day, still positive vibes from you. When they gave you crappy jobs at work, you still smiled. You could be around complete stranger customers & it would seem as if yall were lifelong friends. You are one of those rare people that everybody enjoys & wants to be around. Every time you drive by the house, I can expect a honk from you. But sometimes you were going so fast that I couldn't even see your face. That didn't matter though because that long beard wrapped around both sides of your neck to the back of your head told me exactly who you were. I never told you this but I have always looked up to you as like another father figure. It didn't matter if we were doing something productive or something stupid, I still looked towards you for guidance. You taught me a lot of things. I learned some really valuable stuff from you that helped me figure out a little bit more about how to play this short and confusing game that we call life. A few years ago, I made a decision that I would no longer visit people when they have the same kind of day that you're having today. It wasn't a very popular decision but this aint a popularity contest. Just as long as you & I are good with each other, nothing else matters. Even though I quit coming around you and everybody else I know also, you are still important to me & you still matter to me & you still mean a lot to me & I still care about you & I still love you & I really really miss you right now, a lot. I am grateful & lucky that I met you.

I don't have a memory that don't include Uncle Bob. Since I was 12 year's old he was there. He welcomed a nervous boy meeting his family for the first time, meet in Monterey CA. To when I first moved to Arkansas him and my cousin Jimmy David his son were the best people. I had Uncle Bob's cell phone number and called him regularly before he got sick. He always made sure I was invited to functions and taught me a lot even how to ride a motorcycle. I get in trouble all the time for saying hey woman to people lol. Got that from him I guess. He was truly one of my favorite people in this whole world. I'm going to miss the heck out of him. Rest in love Uncle Bob

Kevin and I are sending many prayers and hugs to you all. We have known and loved the Foshee family for many years. Bob has a special place in my heart for many reasons, but I am thankful that he was always there to help my mom with anything that she needed to have done. One of my memories of Bob is getting on to him for driving his motorcycle down Amity Road way too fast. I can see his face plastered with a big smile as his hair and beard were blowing in the wind. He would promise me that he would not drive that fast anymore, but we know that promise was short lived - he just loved driving his motorcycle fast! So ride fast and hard now Bob as you are now free from pain and suffering.
