    Dear Tommy and Nancy, Our sincere sympathy to you. Jim and I have fond memories of all the Christmas parties and the Love and warmth Uncle Bobby gave us. My fondest memory is when Uncle Bobby would give me money to play the bowling game and give me the kitty cocktails for many years of my childhood. He was a wonderful and loving Uncle. I will miss him very much. He will be in our prayers. Our love from Mississippi.
