I enjoyed the last few years seeing him at Autumn Care. He liked walking me to the front door. We always talked about memories and family. My last visit before they stopped letting people in we went out and looked at the sun. He had a big smile.

Enjoyed our talks over the many years we knew you within the family gatherings. I’m sure you will give Mickie, Woodrow, Billy, and Joan and earful. God Bless and prayers to Lisa and family as well.

Bobby was always so kind and gentle spirited when I would see him at any gathering we were both at. He always asked me all about my family and myself. He always had a hug to share. I'm so sorry for his loss.
