Another memory I will always cherish is going to the Apple Barn & Panorama barn in Ellijay to buy mutsu & golden delicious apples and sourwood honey which were his favorites. We loved getting the jellies and relishes too. Cousin Bobby was a good man with a good heart! He had a special way to make you laugh too. We enjoyed picking blackberries, strawberries and plums. I know Thanksgiving and Christmas were sad times for him after Aunt Roselle died and he often wanted to go Savannah to get out of the house because he loved and cared for his mom Roselle so dearly. I wish I could say I love you Bobby because I miss you. He had the prettiest handwriting and would send the most beautiful Christmas cards with Jesus on them from Hallmark. I miss you cousin Bobby!

Bobby was a good neighbor and friend who was always willing to offer of himself to help others any way he could. If he said said he would do something you could depend on his word. He will be missed dearly.

It’s with a heavy heart and much sadness that I share my sweet, precious memories! My cousin Bobby was a wonderful man and we will truly miss him on earth. My favorite memories were always going to drill weekend at the base and meeting him to eat with my husband & 3 children. He would always say, Crystal, we need to try this place, it’s fabulous! Every month, we tried new restaurants, cup cake shops, and bakery’s for years. We enjoyed talking about the military and current events. We also enjoyed going to the Cherry Blossom Festival & the Cotton Pickin Fair together. He had a heart of gold and a very giving spirit. He enjoyed helping the homeless and giving back to society. He enjoyed going on long walks. He was an awesome chef who enjoyed cooking. He would make the best fudge, million dollar pies, broccoli chicken braid, yeast rolls, and so much more. He loved Savannah & the big gulf shrimp too. He always came to visit us with my Aunt Roselle (his mom) when I was young and we would always go shopping together. He also had great taste for clothes and fine jewelry that he loved to buy for others. He also loved lilies and we would go to the Lily farm to buy them. He was always sharing his lilies with us. Every time I see a Lilly now, I will think of him. He will live on in my heart and the hearts of those he touched throughout his life. I love you Bobby and miss you!! Thank you for teaching me about the meaning of kindness!
