    So sorry to hear of your loss. I enjoyed working with Bobby when he was with the Fayetteville Police Department and I was on the Board of Mayor and Aldermen. What a nice man – I have many fond memories of our service together on behalf of the city.

    Please know you are in our thoughts and prayers.
