My condolences to all the family for the loss of your loved one. Bobbie & I go way back to when Stacey & my son were just 2 yrs old and we roomed together. We had lost touch with each other for many years and I had recently found her and Stacey on facebook. Over the years I have thought of her almost everyday and wondered how she was doing. I have really missed her and have always had a special place in my heart and always will. I love and miss you Bobbie. RIP my friend. May we meet again some day.

So very very sorry to hear of Bobbie Kays death. Such a cute little girl when she was little living in Oak Ridge, with platinum,white hair and sparkling blue eyes, and then growing up in Orlando Florida grew into a beautiful teenager and then moving back to Clinton TN and became a great Mom. We love you, Bobbie Aunt Joy and since Bob
