Bobby Ray Green
January 9, 2019
Oh Trina and Family,
Once every 10 years or so I have the privilege of meeting someone of extraordinary character. An almost magical person who understood kindness, hard work, neighborliness, and humor. Two decades ago that person was Bobby. If I visited my mother-in-law, Betty Broom, next door when he would be working in his yard, he would stop and come over to see how I was doing as well as how the boys were doing. If I was doing some repair work for Mrs. Broom he would show up uninvited to help, no matter how difficult the job. Amazingly, even if he was in the house when we arrived he would come out to great us. He would take Mrs. Broom's garbage cans to the roadside and bring her mail and newspaper to the door. All of this out of Kindness and a zeal to help others. It would be wonderful if there were 1000 more Bobbys in our lives but, since he is 1 in a million there is no chance of that. May peace be with you.
