    My wife and I are totally shocked at the news of Bobby's passing. We knew him since Pizzetta's first opened on Oleander. He always went out of his way to be friendly and had a great smile at all times. He made the best Nona Pizza at Pizzetta's. After the Brunswick Forest store opened we still often went to the Oleander store just to see Bobby. I just spoke to him last week when I picked up a couple of sandwiches at the Brunswick store - same great hello, same great smile. He was a wonderful person and we can not believe he is gone. Rest in Peace, Bobby. Bob & Diane Henshaw
