I believe it was just three weeks ago my last conversation with Bobbi was, as always, filled with love and expressions of adoration. That was always the case throughout the years I considered her Mom. She never missed a chance to make me feel like I was one of her own. My heart aches for her and for Dick. I will miss her bubbly laugh during our chats and her warm hugs. They will always be Mom and Dad and she will be greatly missed.
