Bobbie was a very sweet caring person. We enjoyed having Her and Charles come to Asheville to visit us. She and I had a lot in common, both of us were Hairdressers. I'm glad they had ten years together. My sympathy to Her family and may she rest in Peace.

Barbara, or Bobbi as we know her was a sweet, caring person. We were so sorry to hear of her passing. We loved having her as part of the Hemphill family and enjoyed her company when she and Charles took trips with all of Charles's family. We extend our prayers and sympathy to her family.

To her children and the family of my friend, Barbara (Bobbi) Jean Perkins, a dear sweet lady that I love dearly.

Wishing you a peaceful place,
a sheltering space,
where your heart can be safe
from the sadness and
know nothing but comfort.

May the promise in God's
Word continue to be your hope
today, your peace tomorrow and
your comfort always.

My love and God's blessings to all of you,
Carolyn Irwin
