Dearest Lisa and Family, my thoughts are with you all. His friendship was a blessing in my life and I so looked forward to seeing him around town. He could make me laugh and it was times I needed that laugh so bad. Bobby loved our PHS Class of 1972 and made sure we had reunions in years passed. My heart aches along with all his family and friends. May God send angels to whisper comforting words, thoughts, memories when we miss and remember Bobby. Love and peace always.
