Uncle Bobby, I have so many fond memories of you growing up, & then visiting later in life. Your love & commitment to God, your family & community was truly inspiring! I miss you already, as I know many others do as well. I'm grateful God blessed me with you in my life & I'm grateful to you for your service to our country. I'm sure when you met God at the pearly gates He said to you "Well done my good & faithful servant" because no doubt you served the Lord with all your heart every day. I love & miss you!

Cousin Bobby Ray always greeted me with a hug and a smile as we joked about our distant family connection. He was a wonderful man and the care and concern for our community was evident in everything he did. We appreciated the songs he and Ann would do on Sunday afternoon at the Abbeville Nursing Home. It was uplifting and the residents enjoyed it very much. He exuded warmth while working at Chandler Jackson and visitors could feel it was genuine. I can't believe he has gone to his Heavenly home. He will be missed here on earth by everyone who knew him! Love you Cuz

Anne, my heart breaks for you in this hard time, but I rejoice in knowing where Bobby is today. The heavenly choir has a richer bass section, and I know he will not stop singing praises and glorifying his precious Lord. I am here for you anytime you need or want me and willing to do whatever I can to help you make this adjustment. I loved the times we sang together; I loved the times you and I have spent together...especially the trip to Indiana. Bobby will be missed, but we'll see him again "in the morning." "I'll Trust the Potter's Hand." Much love and many prayers, Ann
