Beautiful service for a beautiful woman. We’ll miss her. Love to Tom and all family❤️ Mark & Vicki
Tom, We're sorry to hear of Bobbi's passing. You are in our prayers. Kent and Marj Festvog
I was Tom and Bobbi's best man at their wedding in 1987. When I attended their daughter Tommi's wedding 2 years ago, I noticed the compassion and gentleness Bobbi had for her beloved Gracie. Bobbi was blessed to experience her daughter's wedding and the birth of her granddaughter recently. We are keeping Tom and Bobbi's family in our prayers.

Bobbi was special anyway but when I discovered she too wanted an irish wolfhound we bonded over our love of this unique dog. Instead of just wishing she jumped in and adopted Gracie. When we finally adopted our wolfhound, Bobbi gave me all the tips and tricks to owning a monster dog. I will be forever grateful to her for leading the way and showing me I could have my dream dog.
Bobbi, you will be greatly missed💖
I always enjoyed our chats, your book reviews and star gazing stories😊
You endured a hard journey & now may you rest and continue watching over us as the stars watched over you😇
Bobbi's gentle spirit touched our family, and we feel blessed for having known her.

As you all know, Bobbi was a WONDERFUL person. She was always upbeat, knowledgeable, and a TRUE PLEASURE to be around and work with. She will be sorely missed. Her friends in Alabama at BSI Computer Solutions.
So sorry for your loss, Bobbi's bright spirit and smile will be missed.

So Sorry to hear of Bobbi's passing. Rather than waiting for the storm to pass, Bobbi learned to dance in the rain and she did a very fine job of it!
Tom, so sorry on the loss of Bobbi. She was always a most favorite banker friend of mine...a free spirit with class! Treasure the good memories.
Bobbie was a very kind person. God bless her and prayers for her Family.
