    Bobby was one of a kind. We did business together for many years and when he told me he was coming to Houston and lets do lunch it was more than a lunch it was pure laughter. I haven't seen him since he has retired but think about him and keep up with him thrua mutual friend. I am going to miss him but I know he is at peace and making people laugh. So long for now my friend.
