Here's how I sum up Bobbie: When you are asked the question who is your role model or inspiration or favorite person...in my life and for what I have learned is important, I have always come up with the answer of course, my pastors , my parents and brother, but also, for real, I would actually answer Bobbie Oxar. I never really thought about why. I just loved her and loved how she made me feel.
Bobbie was probably the sweetest, kindest soul I knew. She always had a natural ability to make newcomers feel welcome and make old friends feel like family.
I remember when I hurt my back and could not move for 2 months. Bobbie was the only one that came to visit & bring me much needed food and friendship. This was at the time of her last days of driving. How special she made me feel.How unselfish to think of me when she was not well herself… but with her, I was not surprised…that was Bobbie…She loved to do that.
Each and every time I saw her she was smiling and she had a little joke to tell. She was patient, kind, calm, never boasting, never loud. It's as if you could look up the definition of Christian in the dictionary and Bobbi's face would be next to it, so you would not just know what the word Christian meant, but you would know what a Christian looked like…. because it was not just what Bobbi did, but it was how she sounded and looked too. It was her smile, her face, her walk and her talk. She truly walked the walk .
We love you always Bobbie and maybe one day... I could hope to be just be half the woman you were.
Bobbie was such a presence at our church, Holy Cross. I can still hear her answering the phone in her sing-song voice, "Good afternooooon, Holy Cross!" And I can still recall the number of hugs she gave me and my brother Philip (dubbed "her boyfriend") as we grew up at the church. She loved her church family as much as she loved her own. And she is so missed already- Until we meet again, Bobbie. All our condolences to her children and grandchildren.
Dear George, Mary, and family:
Your mom was a special lady and friend to many. Her faith and love for her Lord were unshakeable even in the face of the many health issues she endured over the last several years. She was a good and faithful servant and had the ability to brighten the day of anyone who was fortunate to be around her. My thoughts and prayers are with you during this most difficult time. May God grant you strength and comfort in the knowledge of His salvation and the heavenly home your Mom has left us for.
My Deepest Sympathy,
Bobbie will be missed. She did so many kind things for me when I lived in Miami. I will pray that God's comfort will be with you. We rejoice that she is with Jesus!
Bobbie was a very special person who we dearly admired,Our prayers are with you Bobbie, and we look foreword to seeing you again one day in the future.
