The world lost one of the best men this week. He was funny, caring, loving and smart. I always thought that he was the best dresser ever. I don't think he will ever be forgotten. I loved him so much and I know how you guys are grieving for him. Just know that he is with Oralene and Gary and still has that wonderful smile on his face.

I only knew Bobby after he started Flowers by Oralene's but always found him to be a fair and honest business man with a pleasant & upbeat personality. I have done business with that family for many years and have always been pleased. I would like to extend my warmest sympathy to the family. Sincerely, Ann Scarboro Kluttz
