Bobby is my cousin. I am very sorry to hear he has passed away. There were 20 of us cousins on the Frazier side of our family and as often happens with a big family like that we all scattered. I am sorry to say I have not seen Bobby in a number of years. But what I remember most about Bobby was his sweet smile and his easy going manner. I am sorry for the families loss.

My every memory has you in it Daddy. You were my hero. You were tough, but I knew it came from your heart and the desire to give me a great life...and you did! You taught me right from wrong, good from bad, want from need, happiness...and now sadness. My life will never be the same without you in my daily plan. I know it will be ok, but it will never be right until I am back in your arms. I thank God for every moment I had with you and I know I am blessed because of you. May you finally rest in peace beside our Lord and love us until we are all together again. May we make you proud. I love you Daddy, and I will miss you beyond understanding. See you soon. All my love, Your Baby Girl...forever
