    On behalf of my family, please accept our deepest sorrow for the loss of Uncle Bobby. He was a kind man with a wonderful soul. He was quick with a joke and generous with love for his family. I have many special memories of fishing and hanging out with him in North Carolina and feel very fortunate to have seen him just a few years ago. With love and sympathy, Jay, Jane, Jameson, Ian and Harrison Collier
