  1. I remember “Bobbie” as a real lady. She always had a sweet smile & a kind word. Bobbie and I, worked at Douglas Aircraft in Torrance,CA. I worked in Planning for Pete Flores. The area in which she worked was covered by our Planning Grp. I will miss her & her kind “SMILE”. When we all get to heavan, Bobbie will be there with her kind smile to put us at ease.

  2. Our Dearest Bobbie, A true lady. You were so kind to us. We were so young when we met you. You made life a lot easier at McDonnell Douglas for us. We can only say that you made us feel like your family. You displayed a kindness that we rarely see today. We will truly miss you. May God grant you eternal life. Until we meet again my friend. Love, John & Carol
