I was Bobby's teacher when he was just a little guy. I always remember him as a real sweetheart. I don't remember all my students, but he was really special. My condolences and best wishes to your family.

Please accept my sincerest condolences for the loss of your brother Bobby. I have many memories of Bobby at Pop and Grandma Curran's farm at the various family gatherings. He was always in good spirits and he enjoyed everyone's company. I am sure he will be missed by all that knew him.
