Ive known Bobbie since kindergarten I always thought she was the most beautiful girl I had ever seen.
I will always remember her quick wit, her comedic comments, her compassion and love for others
My heartfelt sympathy to Bobbie's family She loved all of you and was so very proud of her grandchildren.
Rest in peace Bobbie. I will miss you very much but you will always be in my heart.

I remember so many things mostly as a little girl growing up spending lots of time with my aunt Bobbie.
1 her beautiful blue eyes
2 her adorable crooked smile 😊
3 her sweet soft voice
4 her embracing hugs πŸ€—

5 her Gurtz sense of humor
6 her emotional support
7 her love for shopping πŸ›
8 her extreme love for her family
9 how her face lit up when she spoke of her grandchildren
10 her love and admiration for her big brother
Those are only ten things so many more!!!!!!
Tho our family went through many rough times aunt Bobbie never stopped caring!!
People can go but memories won’t fade
Rest In Peace you will be missed
