I am Barbara Hobbs Padgett. My dad was Joe Hobbs, born and raised in Fayetteville. Think we saw each other at the Hobbs reunion several years ago. Spent time with them when we were little and visiting my Grandpa Hobbs at the old home place. I am so sorry to hear of her passing. I have great memories of Beverly Sue and her family.
