    Daddy, even though I know you are with mama and whole again, my heart still hurts. You were the one contant in my life I knew I could always on. You always took such good care of us. You taught me that family should always be first and to stick together. I’ve instilled that trait in my own children. While you are gone from this earth, you will forever be in my memories and my heart. I love you so very much! Teresa

    Mr. Bobby you certainly were one of a kind and loved by many. I hope you knew what a force you were in so many of our lives. You and Ms. Peggy always treated us as one of your own, and I am grateful that I have warm memories of you both. When I was a little girl my dad would take me to “the track” sit me up on the bar and order me a coke…lol. sure couldn’t do that these days. You see u have been in and out of my life for 50 years! I’ll miss you Mr. Bobby….you have left a big hole in this heart of mine. Love u much, God Speed…..

    Will always remember you were always good to all us kids. Always made me feel comfortable whenever I came to your house. Loved working with you at the bar what short time I did and had so many laughs with all of you. You were one in a million. Thankful that I was able to share so great times with your family. Love to you all.

    Very thankful we were able to meet you Mr Bobby, it’s a small world when you talk of the fire department and the people you knew that we know. Our Grandson Raiden won’t know his Great grandfather in the flesh but he will love the stories as he grows up. So glad we did meet you and your family is in our prayers. You will be their guardian Angel. Always remember the good times. You are at peace now. Watch over the babies…
    Sincerly with prayers,
    Molly and Otis Bergeron
