  • Geri, Not a day goes by that Bobby don't look at your pictures on the wall or talk of you! He misses his Mama so much. I wish we could have met as we are very much alike I hear. I know you are with him as I feel you often. Just wanted to say, thank you for your Son. He is a beautiful man & has so many amazing qualities. I promise to always love him, cherish him, listen to him & not take advantage of him. You watch down and see all his negative paths he must endure now although know I am helping him get past all the negative situations and people. Soon he will finally live his life fully happy as he hasn't for decades. My love to you... - Posted by: January Sky-Weir (Daughter in-law) on: Jun 29, 2013
