    Barry and I are so sorry for your loss. Bobby would stop by the house in Phenix occasionally and visit with us and we really enjoyed those visits very much. He was a kind and caring person who gave his friendship to anyone. Loved his smiles and happy disposition. Truly a man of God. Prayers for comfort and strength.
