    Sorry for your loss. I worked with Bobbie at the VA for 12 years. I was flabbergasted how she, and probably Dorothy, could sit down and compose a hysterically funny song or poem about anyone or anything.

    Bobbie worked with me at City Hall. She was so dependable and hard working. I could count on her to always do her best. As a group, we always reserved lunch for our time to chit chat, tell stories, and laugh endlessly. I miss those daily lunches. I will miss Bobbie more. She was a good person with a big heart. Rest in peace Bobbie.
