    Sending heartfelt sympathy to all. Her passing leaves a hole in the hearts of all who knew her.
    God Bless

  3. Oh Bobby, you always had a beaming smile and delightful giggle. My deepest sympathy and prayers to Cliff and family.

  4. My deepest sympathy to all of Bobby’s family and friends. I knew “Bobby Kay” Homer many decades ago, when we worked together at Westwood Drive-In; she was the older sister of my classmate Ginny. She had the sweetest temperament and was lovely to be around. She also had a cute sense of humor! Cliff, I remember you too! You and Bobby were already dating then. Very sorry for the tough loss to you all.

  5. We want to extend our sympathy and prayers to Bobby’s family, and especially to her sister-in-law, Debbie Garver, and Debbie’s husband, Dave.
