The Best Grammy

Big or small you had such an impact on everyone that crossed paths with you. Reagan, Brantley and Dixie truly lost the best Grammy anyone could ask for. The memories they made with you will last a lifetime. Breathe free Bobbie. I know Heaven is a brighter place now.

My Gorgeous Little Sister

There is a new Angel in Heaven! I know it’s brighter now because of your beautiful smile. I know your happy and healthy now free of pain and struggling to breathe. I hope your flight to gain your new wings was peaceful and beautiful! I miss you terribly. I know Daddy was waiting so he would be with you to see Jesus! I can just see the look on both your faces as you strolled over Heaven seeing loved ones, friends and all your pups there. Hug Daddy for me! You both watch over me. I have two guardian Angels. My hearts broken till I’m with you both again. Rest easy and peaceful little Sister! I will see you soon
Miss and love you forever and always,
Love Sis

Greatest Mom anyone could ever have

Thinking of you my friend

Prayers for all your family Bobbie. You fought so long and so hard. My heart hurts and I’m going to miss you so much!

Miss you my friend

You fought a rough fight. So many people were rooting for you. We walked the treadmill, spoke of the love of our grandkids. We both loved Tennessee (also home of my momma). You will be missed. God thought you needed to rest. I will miss our talks.
