    I grew up playing with Bobbie and Tommy at Robert & Donna's house. Both Robert & Donna were kind and welcoming to me and all of us kids who would come over to hang out. They often invited me along to family gatherings and cookouts and I always had a good time. I send my prayers fir Bobbie and Tommy and the rest of the family. May the Lord keep his arms around you and fill you with his strength. I know you were very close to your mama and if you need anything please reach out! Xoxo

    It has been wonderful being your neighbor the last few years. You were always kind. Tried to help me whenever I was just needing to borrow a couple eggs or sugar or anything else. Heaven is a very lucky place to have you.
