To Les & Family, sincere condolences from Marty and Carole Wosley.

I remember Bobbi and her brother, Tom when we were all kids. Their grandmother was my Great Aunt Jean Arnott. I am sorry to read that she has passed. My sincere condolences to her family and my sympathy at this time. Karen Morris McDougall, brother David and sister Jackie.

She was the best teacher I ever had. She was the first teacher that took the time out to help me when no one else did . She helped me in so many ways. A few time I asked her if she could adopt me and she told me with a smile on her face that she will always be there for me in my heart. I just wish that she knows how much she helped me. And I wish more teachers were like her. Rest in peace ❤❤
