    Joann, I am so sorry to hear the news of Bobby Earls passing! I can see his smiling face as I type now! I will truly miss him coming by the shop just to sit and talk and share stories of the days of us growing up, he sharply remembered the good ole days of Reggie, Boo boo and the crowed back then and was one of the best story tellers of those old days I know. I can still see his smiling face and hear his laugh when we performance tuned his Camaro. Dino this thing will fly he repeated every time I seen him. I will hang on to those good times and memories as long as God keeps me here. Our prayers are with you and all of the family! The Rathburn's

    Joann, I am so sorry for your loss. Bobby was a great man. He was my patient at WHA. Praying that God will grant you comfort and peace during this sad time. If you need anything please let me. I lost my husband Ronnie, on November 29th. I know your pain. Cherish your memories that y'all made together.
