Just a note and a heartfelt sincere loving memory of my Uncle Bobby. Just want the family to know I am thinking of you all. The first anniversary of a parents death is very difficult and painful. So many memories pop up with so many things that they have and will miss. Some loving, some painful and some funny! Hoping to bring a smile to all of you, I will share a funny one. When I was in my teens and certainly long before that, I loved your Dad with all my heart. A funny loving man whom I called Uncle Bobby. I was always so happy when your Mom and Dad would visit . Many times they would come and play cards on a Friday night with my parents. Of course they always had food and drinks. Once in a while, I would wake up to find my Uncle Bobby fast asleep with a pillow in the bathtub. You can imagine what a shock that is to a teenage girl when I would go in to use the bathroom in the morning. I would yell to my Dad to get Uncle Bobby out of the tub. My Dad would say, “Just close the shower door, he won’t even know your in there!” WHAT! Though, our lives as we all got older went in different directions, he was And all of you were always in my heart and will always think of him with great fondness and much love ❤️. Love to all of you during this difficult time and in the chaos in our world that we are all enduring. Stay safe everyone! Love you all, Flo❤️❤️❤️

Bobby has been my brother-in-law for 60 years. I have know him since I was 10 yrs old,and he introduced me to horse back riding and I loved him for that. My husband, children and I spent many of my husbands military leaves in their home for 17 yrs and my kids loved Uncle Bobby and Auntie Patty. He will be missed by all of us.
