Bobby, last night I dreamt I got to see you one last time. I hugged you so much, somehow knowing it would be the last time but not being able to tell you. It was so real and it hurt so much letting you go. My heart is filled with sadness but we shared so many memories growing up. You were the big brother I never had, my protector, my friend through some tough teenage years. You were always good to me and loved me with your whole heart. Losing you has been so hard. You will always be in my heart, Uncle Bobby.
Love, Selina

Another memory, I want to share. My brother was so special to me , he did everything in his power to make me comfortable and safe. ....

I was around 8yrs old and we were waiting for my mom in the backseat of her car. Mom was getting us burgers and fries. Anyways, I started to get restless & started to complain. It was hot & mom was taking long. Bobby tried his best to make me comfortable and asked me, if I liked magic. I wiped my tears and said, yes.
He said, look at me baby sister. I know magic .. He showed me a pearl and slipped it into his ear and took the pearl out of his other ear. I was so amazed and said, do it again. Well, he did it again and placed the pearl in his ear but this time, his face looked puzzled and he kept hitting the side of his head. I asked him, where is the pearl? As I asked him, my mom opened the car door and Bobby whispered,
Please DON’T tell mom but the pearl is stuck in my ear. I said, okay. . He hit the side of his head to make it pop out but instead he lodged the other pearl in his other ear. His eyes got big and I yelled, MOM ! BOBBY HAS PEARL’S STUCK IN HIS EARS. We rushed him to the hospital.... they took the pearls out quickly but boy Bobby was in trouble for doing his magic for me... I remember thinking, I’m so lucky to have the best brother in the world. At a young age, I was able to realize, Bobby & I had a special relationship. He was my world, my everything...

I love you Bobby, I love you so much..

I have so many memories but the one I felt really bad about was .......
I was around 14 yrs old , I found $40 in my closet, in a pocket of a jacket .
I got so happy and called my friend Anna. We went to Taco Mart and we pigged out. We must of ordered several different plates of food to taste. Forty dollars was a lot of money in the early 80’s. Anyways, I got back home & saw Bobby going crazy looking for his money. He was looking all over my closet. I acted like, I did t know what he was looking for and threw him out of my room. He looked at me and said, I know you took my money Pearl, it’s okay.. you deserve it..
I looked at him with a straight face and I denied , denied and denied....
I love Bobby so much, he was my world growing up . My life...
