Memories Timeline


  1. Uncle Bobby will truly be missed! I can remember as a little girl going fishing with him and my brother at Lake Lanier. He would pack us a nice picnic lunch and we would head out for a day of fun. After enjoying the day filled with lots of laughs he would take us for ice cream at the twistie treat. As I have grown older, all the memories of Uncle Bobby and our family will be everlasting in my mind. Now that I have two children, I have enjoyed seeing the excitement on there faces when we would visit Uncle Bobby , my son Cole truly adored him and my daughter Avery just smiled as he held her. God Bless you Uncle Bobby you were a hero to all of us!

    Love you!
