I wrote this letter on December 18 and asked that it be forwarded to you (daughters Penne, Sande, & Terri) but it was returned by the retirement home.
Yesterday I learned that your Mom had died last month and I wanted to tell you how sorry we were. I know I met Penne but am not sure whether I did Teri and Sande.
Your folks meant a lot to us over the years. We originally met on a Tracks to Mexico caravan in the mid-1980s and visited back and forth from Puyallup to the Bradford in Vancouver. Your Dad and I corresponded via e-mail when it was early on and they came to see us in Tumwater, Anderson Island, Desert Hot Springs, etc.
We arranged to visit with them in 1999 at Rainbow Spa when we were on our way home and ended by buying the place across the street. We loved having them as neighbors and were sad when they moved to Palm Desert but were able to continue visiting.
My husband (who is now 91) reminded me of the time they took us out on his birthday to the restaurant in Desert Hot Springs where they placed a large Mexican hat on your head and take a photo (which we still have).
We wanted you to know they both made a lasting impact on our lives and we have missed Vaughn and will miss Bobbe too now.
You have our sympathy. Alma & Bill Greenwood

When I think of Aunt Bobbie, her smile comes first to my mind. She was always happy. Whenever she and Uncle Vaughn came Idaho Falls, Idaho to visit her parents, I would go see them with my parents. She always made me feel special. This continued into my adult life. She would tell me about her travels, and keep me posted on my cousins, Penne, Sande, and Teri. On one of their visits, they brought their great dane, King. He was tall, so tall that my toddler could walk underneath him. He was so gentle with her. Uncle Vaughn was in the military, so Bobbe and the girls were able to travel to several different countries. She made Christmas extra special for me as a child and she probably never realized it. She would send my brother and I Christmas gifts. They were always so unique. They were the gifts we opened on Christmas Eve. Aunt Bobbe was a loving and gentle person, and a wonderful sister to my mom. Mom told me that when she and Bobbe were little, grandma would sometimes tie them to the clothesline with a long rope. This helped her in keep an eye on them while she was hanging out the laundry or doing yard work. I know Aunt Bobbe will be missed, but she leaves behind a wonderful legacy of a loving and devoted family who will continue to share her smile, love and gentleness. We will meet again. Until then, Aunt Bobbe please give the whole family a big hug for us.
We love you dearly.
DiAnn and Randy Allen and family
