Here are some special memories shared by family and friends.
Aunt Bobsy was truly a beautiful woman inside and out! I remember fondly when she had come back to visit in Newfoundland when I was young. We had taken a boat tour and my hat had blown away, she consoled me and when she left she sent me a new hat. She was loving caring and so generous. I will never forget her. Sending my condolences to the family.
