I am so so sorry we missed Mr. Bobby's memorial yesterday. He was a good neighbor of many years. We will miss him driving up and down our street. Bobby was a good man and he would always brag about his church family. I know we will meet again in Heaven someday. Praying for his family and friends. Rest in peace our good friend and neighbor, Mr. Bobby.
