Uncle Bobbie was a good man. He and Aunt Edna were a lovely couple, too. When I was young and right out of college, they let me stay with them in Bowie, MD until I found a place of my own in DC. I enjoyed that time with them. They were so generous and kind. I'm sad to hear of Bobbie's passing but I know he and Edna are happy to be reunited once again! Heaven has gained an angel!

Dear Bobbie Ann, We were so sorry to hear of Uncle Bobbie's passing but we know there must have been a wonderful reunion in Heaven when his brothers and sisters were there to greet him along with Aunt Edna. May God bless you - you were very diligent in looking after him especially after Aunt Edna passed. Our thoughts are with you. Ron, Diana and Jeffrey Ellis and Paige Ellis Zawatsky
