Bobby was such a gift to the people who knew him. He was kind and fun. He loved people well and could always be counted on. His good sense of humor and loyalty made him impossible not to love. He was an amazing dad and husband, and I can’t even begin to imagine how much his family will miss him. Lauren, I love you with all my heart and I’m so glad for you that you had the privilege of being loved we’ll by such a wonderful man. My heart is broken for you and the kids. I have no words of condolence, but I’m praying for you and I’m here for you. You’re all close to my heart in this hard time. ♥️
