    My heart breaks tjhat the family is having to go through such a tragedy again so soon after Johnny. I remember hanging out at Deb’s house where our favorite activity was to terrorize both Johnny and Bobby . Bobby could give just as good as he got so it was always fun to be around him. He was such a kind soul, its hard to believe that he’s gone. Take comfort knowing he is with Johnny now. Big hugs to your whole family.
