    We will miss Bobbi when we visit our family in florida. Bobbie taught me a lot of sewing tricks. We also loved her tales of the old days of the area and cute stories of Bill, her son. Bill and his Dad did a lot together. bobbie made gorgeous Barbie doll outfits with beadwork. May God always shine on her family and loved ones. oxoxoxox
