There's an extreme sense of loss and misfortune on prematurely losing Bobby.  One indelible memory I have was during my real estate days when Bobby sought my services on a prospective home purchase. This was 11 years after graduation. As hard as we tried, we just could not find anything on the whole damn market he liked.  Needless to say, it was a learning experience for both of us, and the subject of inside humor I'll never forget.

Bobby always had a kind word and a hello with a hug for everyone. My husband and I just went through a troubling time with a family member, people were opinionated. But, not Bobby, he greeted me with a smile, a kind hello and a hug. I loved that about him. He was always kind and understanding. I will miss seeing him at RMC and NGC. Rest in Peace Bobby, until we meet again.
