Pops, I only knew you for a couple of years but I feel like I knew you my whole life. We connected instantly and I cherished our friendship. You hated when I told people you were my grandfather but truth is you were what I was missing my whole life. I never had a grandfather and when my dad passed you were there to help fill a void I was missing. I have so many memories with you. You always made me feel good and always told it like it is.In many ways you reminded me of my dad. And I know if you two met you would got along so great. I could always go to you for honest advice. Its a shame that you were taken out the way you were. I never would have thought you would be gone. Im just glad you were finally happy and enjoying the life you deserve. I will miss you so much Pops. I love you. Your step daughter Steph

My deepest sympathy to Bobby’s family, Ed, and his friends. He wrote, and road, his own path thru life. May his love remove the sorrow of your loss.
