Memories Timeline


  1. My thoughts and prayers are with you all. I will surely miss Aunt Bobby. All of them are all back together now probably having a good ol’ time talking to one another. what a big reunion she is having.

  2. Dear Mr. Roberts & family, I was a friend of Ed’s in high school. I remember spending a lot of time at your house, your wife was a wonderful lady. She was always so easy to talk to. My sympathy to you and your family.

  3. Aunt Bobby, It wasn’t supposed to be like this. I was on my way. We had so much to talk about. If only you could have held on a few more days… I didn’t understand your message at 2:06am Wed. morning but I do now. You were saying goodbye, there was no apology needed. I love you so much. You were our Rock and our Hero. Know that I will keep Uncle Bob, Donna Eddy and all the family in my thoughts and prayers, were going to need them. I so wanted for you to meet my Bob, but not like this. But just for the record you looked beautiful and your hair was perfect! That gorgeous white head of hair is now perfect for eternity. Love you !

  4. To such a wonderful great-aunt. Someone who was always willing to listen but always willing to tell you how-it-is too! I loved each and every moment I got to spend with you Aunt Bobbie. Noah and Nic say they will miss you and I wish you could have seen the new little Miss Alexandra and the curious Mr. Isaiah but I know you are watching from above. We love you and miss you bunches. Noah says tell Big Pa-Pa hi and he loves him. Love you for always, Sara Elizabeth

  5. Hey there Lady, Just standing here cooking zuccini ,ground beef, onions and yellow squash with tears running down my face. Never could cook it without thinking about you but this time was tough, I so wanted to pick up the phone and talk to you but instead here I am writing in this book. Just want you to know that you will never be forgotten and that every time I cook that meal it will come along with some of the fondest memories of my life. I love you !

  6. Just wanted to say hello. Talked to Uncle Bob Sat. morning and he sounds so heart broken. You were the love of a lifetime. It sounds like Katies birthday was a little difficult without you. Been there done that. No fun. Sound like he is just taking one day at a time. Thats really all you can do. Our lives go on without you, But nothing is the same, We have to hide the heartache When someone speaks your name. Sad are the hearts that loved you, Silent the tears that fall, Living our lives without you, Is the hardest part of all. You did so many things for us, Your heart was kind and true. And when we needed someone, We could always count on you. The special years will not return, When we were all together, But with the love within our hearts. You will walk with us forever. All my love
