What a sad & tremendous loss to her family, her church family and friends (who were like family). She was a wonderful example in her walk with God, consistent in prayer and faithful to God and her church. She left a big footprint that can’t be filled, but beautiful memories we will always cherish. Our condolences and prayers go to Brother Richard and family. We mourn your loss with you and rejoice with you that you can say she was steadfast until the end. Farewell to our sweet friend. Pete and Jan McKinney

We’re so saddened by the loss of our special friend and a vibrant part of our church family . Bobbie was such a wonderful friend who has been a part of our lives for many years she was Great example of what a Christian should be , always caring , concerned and willing to help she was such an important part of our church family, never allowing her own health problems from doing her part in whatever way was needed. Of course, she did many things, in later years , for others with the approval, support and help of her wonderful husband, Richard they were a team! Our prayers and condolences go to Richard and family. We mourn with you the loss of Bobbie and we rejoice with you that she was a steadfast child of God until the end we cherish the friendship we shared and treasure the memories.

Sister Bobbie was truly Loved and Respected by everyone that knew her., especially by the Thigpen Family.. It is so hard to convey in words the tremendous impact she had on our entire family. She was a mother figure to both of us. Her advice was not only taken, but was cherished. The examples she set and lived by were an honor to witness. The memories that our family has of her will live on ... not only in our minds, but in our hearts..... Brother Y"Barbo our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family....May GOD comfort you and watch over you.

I have known Richard and Bobbie Lou all of my life. My parents were friends with them and my mother Lois Brinson worked at the old Service Cafe in the 50’s with Bobbie Lou. I am so sorry to hear of her passing, I know she is with the Lord now.. I lift Richard and the Ybarbo family up in prayers. Richard and Bobbie Lou bought me my first Christmas tree after my father passed shortly after I was born, for that I am eternally grateful!!!
