    Mrs. Cheryl, I am sending lots of love and prayers to you and the rest of the family. Many years ago, one of the many times I was playing barefoot in your yard with Robby and Bri I got stung by a bee right between the toes. Mr. Bobby carried me to the porch and took care of my sting. I still think about that all these years later when my own kids get bug bites and stings. I’m sure that’s just one of many examples of the ways, big or small, that Mr. Bobby touched people’s lives. He was a good man.
