    It is so hard to say goodbye…the pain of loosing a mother has only just begun for us…we only buried our precious mother, Mardell McBay yesterday and today we are faced with loosing her brother-in-law and our favorite UNCLE Bobby….we will miss those Vandy ballgame chats….we will miss those hugs and “I love yous” you gave out….RIP and give our mom a great big kiss from her children she left behind…
    Dot and girls, we know exactly what you are feeling now…can’t say when the pain will stop and bitter sweet memories will begin…hopefully knowing that they both are together with our loved ones and dancing the streets of gold in Heaven will help bring peace to us all…
