Gary, Gary Dean, and Tammie,

I am so sorry for your loss as I know how special Bobbi was to me and all of her friends that she was that magnified by a million to her family that she loved deeply. Even though I didn't see Bobbi often, when I did, it was as if there was no time between our last visit. Bobbi was such a ray of sunshine to everyone! She made a monumental effort in September when I was in town to make sure that we connected.
And now, that time together will always be in my heart. I will remember our hug forever!

God Bless all of you!

I am unable to make it to Quincy tonight or tomorrow for services; but, please know that my heart is with all of you during this very sad and difficult time.

Love to Bobbi & to all of you,
Diana
