|Annie Loyd Graves sent me Bobby's obit. I was one
of Bobby's classmates, too, and just wanted you to
know how faithful he was to attend the half dozen
or so reunions Annie and I planned since we
graduated 68 years ago. It was always nice to see
him just to say hello and reminesce about our high
school days and all the years since. I am a
retired college professor and live in WV. I still
come back to the school reunions every spring. |

|Anna and family we were saddened by your
loss. You all are like family and if you
need anything please let us know.
Prayers for you during this time.
We love you all!|
