What a Godly woman, Ms Bobby was. My fondest memory of her is when she was still able to walk around in her merry walker at the nursing home. She would always end her day by walking the halls and praying for every resident there. She would then sit in the front foyer and pray for people as they passed by in there cars. She would ask God to keep them safe and bless their families. I am a nursing assistant at Phenix City Health Care. I had many opportunities to talk to Ms Bobby and I can certainly understand the great love her family has for her. She truly was a jewel and will greatly be missed by all who were blessed enough to have known her. My prayers are with you all. Much Love
