For the past few months I have tried to call Bobby on his cell phone to say Hello and to tell him I love him. Bobby was so good to me for many years, he believed in me and encouraged me to start my own business. I met Bobby when he had me manage the association with Therrell Farms back in 2004 and from the day I met him, he was my sunshine as a friend and someone I so admired and adored. Today, I tried to call Bobby again on his cell phone and for a few weeks now, my heart was telling me something might be wrong. I went on Google to see if I could find another number to call Bobby and found his obituary. I today am so very sad to just learn this and am heartbroken to know someone I knew cared about me so much, encouraged me to be a business woman because he believed I could, was just such a good friend to me. I am so very sorry to his family, his wife, his kids, his grandchildren, as Bobby talked to me so much about all and how much he loved them. To the Yon Family, I am so sorry and know I am late in saying this as I just found out today, and I know Bobby lived a very happy life and is in a good place now smiling down and shining down his love on all of us. Much love to all..XO

Crandall; I am so sorry to hear of your dads passing. I totally loved visiting with him when he came by the shop. We talked about the equipment here and obviously the conversation turned to be about you (no worries, all good stuff sir :-). Your dad loved talking about his family and was very proud of you all. It makes my heart joyful to know he was involved with the church and past on the message of hope in Christ Jesus. Crandall, my prayers are with you and your family during these tough times. I do not know how you feel or the heart break it must bring to loose a parent but I pray you find peace in your heart and if there is anything that I could possibly offer you to help, Crandall I am here at the mere asking. I hope to see you soon, I always love seeing you when you come through, I love your joyful smile and kind heart. Again, my heart is with you and all your family. Gods blessings my friend.

Dear Kermene,
We send our love and deepest sympathy to you and your family. We have loved both you and Bobby for a very long time. It was always so much fun to tease Bobby and to see his heartwarming smile. We mourn with you but know that he is enjoying his new home with our precious Heavenly Father.
