  • All of you are in our hearts, thoughts and our prayers. We are sending lots of love and warm hugs your way. Bobby will TRULY be missed by all of those who had the privilege of knowing him. Bobby may be gone in the physical sense but his “stories” and his memories will live on in each and everyone who was lucky enough to be a part of his life. Seems like there’s a funny Bobby story to be told on a daily basis . 🙂 I have had the pleasure of being blessed by so many of these great “stories” and I find myself sharing them and touching others lives with those whom have never even met him. Laughter is what gets us through the storm and Bobby made sure that he made others smile, sometimes not even being aware he was doing so. xoxo Cathy ( and all my peeps)
