To everyone who knew, loved and cared for Bobby, we his immediate family, Thank You for your loving support in our time of need.
Our brother lead the life he wanted and was very happy. With everyone that we have been talking with in the last few days, we are overwhelmed with HOW much he was loved in the town of Zion, Il.
Our parents died a long time ago and we all had drifted apart, raising our own families and leading our lives but didn't ever forget where we came from.
It's amazing how many people Bobby touched. He wouldn't allow himself to be a charity case, but would work for whatever he had got. He helped all those he came into contact with, in some way or another. Whether it be cutting lawns to shoveling snow, he always worked and took care of those he called his friends and they took care of him.
I just talked with a friend of Bobby, who had known him for over 30 years. He amazed me by how much he loved my brother.
What some of you may not know is that growing up with Bobby wasn't easy. I don't know if it was the drugs or booze. Or if it was his mental status. All I know is the person that his friends are talking about, I didn't know. I am very Thankful that he changed his life around and found wonderful friends. I had forgiven my big brother a long time ago and have not ever had the chance to tell him until now. I am NOW PROUD to call him MY BIG BROTHER.
I will post more about him after the memorial. Hopefully with pictures of him.
Hopefully this reaches most that knew him. My siblings and I THANK EVERYONE who was blessed to know Bobby.
