My Dearest Bigman, how lonely life will be without your smile, love and laughter! The very BEST years of my life were with you.....so many beautiful, beautiful memories. No one on earth could have been a better husband, best friend.....my everything. The only comfort I have is that you are no longer in severe pain and I am sure you now have 2 strong legs. Dance my love, until I can dance with you. You will ALWAYS be in my heart.

My stepdad was a wonderful husband! He was a person who really knew what to do with his "dash". They often tell us that birth and death are not the most important thing about us, but rather what we did with our "dash". Well, I can say without a doubt in my mind that Bobby lived his "dash" to the fullest. Once he met my mom, they lived their dashes together. Here is to you, Bigman! You will be missed more than words are able to express! Rhea
