What great memories I have of your mother. She was such a lovely person and a great inspiration to me as a young teenager.

We were so sad to hear of Bobbie's passing. She used to be our neighbor and my kids loved visiting her house and discovering all of the treasures it held. Such a special lady-- she will be missed and remembered fondly. We are sorry to have missed the services. Unfortunately, we just heard the news today. Our condolences to the family.
