    Bobbye was my mother’s best friend and a 2nd mother to myself and my brothers. She was loved by everyone that knew her and was always a ray of sunshine! Bobbye was every students FAVORITE substitute at Brentwood Middle School. She was everyone’s FAVORITE person to bump into at Brent ballpark, the FAIR, or just out and about. She made everyone feel loved and special EVERYTIME you saw her and the world will was definitely a better place when she was here! Her family and friends can rejoice in that she resides with our Heavenly Father!

  20. Anyone who knew my Ganny knew the bond we shared. I have no words for the utter heartbreak I feel at her passing. I do take comfort in knowing she has finally been reunited with my Grandaddy Dan and so many loved ones and friends she saw pass through the years. It is particularly difficult not to be with all of our family and friends to honor her properly at this time but thank you Daddy,Uncle Jerry,Aunt Shannon, Aunt Jeanette and Ms. Sharon for all you’ve done to honor her as we can. Thank you to the many other family members and friends who popped over to check on her, cared for her, took her to appointments and just sat with her. My love and prayers are with everyone and just know she’s waiting to welcome us all home with a slice of pound cake and big glass of sweet Tea! I love you Tailie and I’ll carry you with me always.
