    Aunt Bobbye was a very sweet lady, and always soft spoken like her sister, Gwen, my Stepmom. She was always very kind to me. I know she will be missed by everyone who knew her.

    So sorry to hearing of Bobbye’s passing. I’ve done her hair for several years, and she was a nice lady. My prayers are with all of you.
