Many great memories of Bobbie through the years from the time she and Curt started dating....the Sunday afternoons on Grandma and Grandpa Trotter's front porch, the holidays, and seeing her welcoming smile when we would shop at Belk. Even the memory of Curt and her driving me to Myrtle Beach in the convertible for the day. She always had a sparkle in her eyes and kind words for everyone.

When I was young Uncle Curt and Aunt Bobbie were always good for a Christmas present at Grandma Trotter's gatherings at the holidays. Uncle Curt had that tan Chevy convertible he rode around in. Wonder if that was how he got that beautiful lady (Bobbie) for a wife. They were a great couple. The last time I saw her she was headed to Alaska for a tour on the train from Anchorage to Fairbanks. Rest in peace.
