    I did Mrs. Baumanns hair a few times and enjoyed every minute of it. She made me laugh and told me a few stories. When I saw her last we had a good visit at a fish fry at Debbie and Terry’s. I was blessed to have known you. I hope you’re dancing in the sky.

    Our Aunt Bob had a feisty streak yet was a lovely lady and a great cook. We looked forward to seeing her whenever we could and were grateful she was in our life along with all the other Tarver brothers and sisters. Family reunions held in Silsbee at her home, before she had to stop having them, they were always great. We will certainly miss our Aunt Bob, and her “I want to tell you something” when she would call. We know she is in good company with her family members in heaven.

    I worked with Bobbie at Silsbee Dr’s Hospital years ago. I can tell you there was never a dull moment. She was such a good friend. Love & prayers go out to her family..

    I am so sorry for your loss. In times like these the memories carry us through the hardest of moments. I am wishing you strength and peace. Christi’s description of her grandmother painted a lovely picture of a life well lived. My thoughts and prayers are with your family during this challenging time.
