Phyllis, we were so sorry to hear that Bob had passed away. We were on Vacation and only learned of his passing when we were at the Hot Shot. We remember all the good times we had with You, Bob, and your Mother at ORA. Take care and let us hear from you sometime. We will keep you and your family in our thoughts and prayers.
Thinking of you at this difficult time
Thinking of you always and sharing your grief at this time
I share your grief in the loss of your husband and father.
I am not certain that Mr. Roe is the Bobby Roe I knew many years ago. He lived on Biltmore Ave. in Asheville near St.Joseph’s Hospital. My family lived nearby. Bobby had the first motorbike in the neighborhood and was always kind and generous in giving us younger kids rides up and down Victoria Road. What a thrill for us! I will always remember him fondly.

MAY GOD BLESS, BUT BOB IS IN A BETTEWR PLACE NOW, LOOKING DOWN ON US INVITING US UP THERE. I AM SURE HE IS BETTER OFF, NO MORE SUFFERING, NO MORE PAIN, HIS MEMORIES IS A TREASURE……PHYLLIS YOU TAKE CARE, FOCUS ON BOBBY AND DEBBIE AND THE GRANDCHILDREN…… THINKING OF YOU ALL, LOVE, JANET
