My big Bubby Bob was my friend and brother for 51 years. I was 13 when My sissy met him. He could aggravate me so much and teased me all the time. But I loved him. The good time we have had with him will never be forgotten. My husband Don and I always had a good laugh every time we visited. Fly high my Big Bubby. See you soon.
