So sad to hear of Bobby's death. Lots of good memories of Bobby in years gone by when we were young in school together at Benoit. To all of you in his family I am so sorry for your loss. Praying for you all. I especially enjoyed seeing him at a school reunion and meeting you Sarah. I remember distinctly how proud of you he was.

I grew up with Bobby (as we knew him) and graduated from Benoit High School with him in 1968. He was always a great friend and well loved by everyone. I lost contact with him after high school, but was glad I got to see him one more time at a school reunion in 2000. I know he will be greatly missed by his family.

So sorry for your loss Diane. I know simple words can't make the pain of losing someone you love go away but hopefully with the love and support of family and friends you will get through it in time.

So sorry for y’all loss! I always loved me some Clyde! He was always so kind and loving! I was in heaven when he let me get up in one of his trucks at Aunt Sues, I was probably 14 or 15. I’ll never forget the love he had and showed to Mama Shields, Aunt Sue and Baby Sis! Then how proud he was of that baby girl, Sarah Beth! I know he will be greatly missed but has so many loved ones waiting on him with open arms. Sarah Beth he will definitely be yours and your babies guardian angel! Love y’all and sending prayers!!!
