Margaret, Our prayers are with you an your family Kurt and Liz Harnisch

Margaret & family, I am sorry to learn of your family's loss. Bobby is included in some of the most important memories of my life. He baptized me when I was 13 years old and he officiated my wedding years later. My thoughts are with you and your family.

My big brother,Bobby, was an encourager, helping many, but never accepting credit. He would always say,"Don't thank me, thank God."Bobby was very intelligent, but the wisest decision he ever made was to marry his sweetheart, Margaret Russell, 55 years ago. I thank God for her and their sweet children, too. Margaret Hamilton

I'm very saddened to hear of Bobby's death. He was a very nice, kind, sweet, gentle, honorable, caring & loving man. I looked up to Bobby my whole life in so many ways as the kind of man I would love to become someday. Bobby truly was a very special man. I'm so very sorry for your great loss. You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers.

Dearest Margaret & Family, I love you all so very are in my thoughts & prayers....always,

Debra, Just want you to let you know that I love you girl and it may not seem like it but each day you will get stronger and better in Jesus Name. Mrs. Thatch

Ottie, my prayers are with you and your family in the loss of your brother. My prayers are with you all.

I'm so sorry! I enjoyed working with Bobby, he was so patient!
