Bobby was one of my favorite cousins a nice guy and I remember how he liked to hunt and fish when I was growing up. I didn't get to see him much over the years but kept up with him through mother. I pray for Phyllis and his children that they be strengthened in knowing he was a honorable man and loved by many.May the love of christ be with this family.Thomas A stokes 2
