Jim, Kimberly and Family,
I was sad when I heard that Bobbi had passed.
I met Bobbi in 1975 at Aero Industrial. She worked for my father and mother-in-law , John and Helen Clarke. Bobbi was loved by everyone she met. She was a hard and dedicated worker who we appreciated a lot. She was not only an employee she was part of our family. Bobbi was always there when you needed her whether it was helping with the Christmas parties, working the race ( sometimes she would bring Jim to help) working charters, flying with Mrs.Clarke, Bobby and Dave Burke to North Carolina to pick out furniture for our lobby . She was always smiling, laughing and drinking her coffee when working the front counter. I can’t say enough about Bobbi. She’s a wonderful person who we all will miss dearly.
Goodbyes are not forever
Goodbyes are not that end
They simply mean we’ll miss you
Until we meet again.🙏
Bobby and Ann

Jim, Kim, TJ and Hannah Kate, I am so sorry for your loss. Your Bobbi was such a brave, kind and compassionate lady. I have always been impressed by her care for others and her ability to put others first. I see her love and wisdom in each of you. I will greatly miss her, but I know that she continues to live on in you.
