    Rest in peace my beautiful friend Bobbi! I just found out the news today after all these years of your death, it so breaks my heart. You were my partner in crime in the young days, I still have my matching tattoo that you made us both go get together, and remember you saying we are “bosom buddies now” I love you dear and am so sorry I was not around for you especially in your time of need. May God rest you and your sons souls in peace. ❤️
