Messages for the Family

    Aunt Bobbie, you were always such a fun aunt and I looked forward to our summer visits as children. As an adult, I continued to enjoy your zest for life and your love and support. I loved our junking forays and finding trash to make into treasure. Although you will be missed greatly here, I am so happy you are whole again and renewed with Jesus and family and friends who greeted you yesterday. I love you and miss you. Please give my Mom a big hug for me when you see her.

    Aunt Bobbi – You were such a beautiful person both inside and out. I will always remember our many many long talks over the phone especially the first year after my mom passed and then the following year when I battled cancer. You were so kind and loving to me and helped me walk through my grief and my health concerns. I loved talking about my mom with you and I loved hearing your stories. You always had time for me when I called and I will treasure those long phone calls and I will miss hearing your voice. May you have peace and joy in heaven as you reunite with family. All of us cousins have been saying there is a Willis Reunion going on in heaven. Hug my mother for me. You will be greatly missed Aunt Bobbi.
