"I remember when I met you, I was bitter, and cynical. Our parents both worked at NCSA, so we ended up spending a lot of time together after school... I remember in that time was some of the happiest days of my life, when you genuinely made me believe in impossible things, and made me think that I was special to the world, and you showed me what love truly feels like. You were able to make me believe in vampires before I had a belief in any god or spirituality. We drifted a while during highschool, mostly because I was a shut-in and wouldn't talk to many people, and the school I was at definitely permitted that kind of antisocial behavior, but when I got kicked out of that school, I think I found myself again, and soon after you found your way back to me. In our last two years of school you and I spent a lot of time together, and you were meaningfully there for me during my darkest times in a way nobody else was. You again, made me feel wanted, and special, and like maybe the world wasn't ending. After highschool, I remember you once sent me something on Facebook, talking about all of the good times we had together, and how you had actively cut out a lot of people from our past from your life, and how I wasn't one of them, and how you wanted to keep me in your life for a very long time. I wish I would have responded in a more sincere, less characteristic manner, because the truth was, and I hope you understood, that I felt entirely the same way, and that I have always realized what an intimate part of me you have always been, and how much you've helped me survive and mature over the years. There are so many people I thought would be around today that aren't, and so many people I thought would be loyal to me that haven't been at all, and I was so happy when I realized that you still cared about me all of this time, and I really hope that you knew it was mutual. You were one of the few people who never resented me for who I was, or what I believed in, or judged me for being weird, who instead embraced everything about me, and in a lot of ways made me better without trying to change me. I have an irreparable debt to you, and there are so many things I wish I would have said to you, and so many more that I wish I would have said better. I wish you could have met my son, I bet you two would have been good friends, just like we are. I will always miss you, and you will always be in my fondest memories. Thank you for everything you did, I'm sorry I wasn't a better friend to you."
"wow... so grateful this page was made. when i first met Bobbi, I was so so shy. she was always th energetic one and got everyone up on their feet & always made sure you were doing okay. I spent a week with her & she showed my the most stupid show I had ever seen, but we kept watching it. we'd watch 8 episodes every day and not get tired of it, & to this day I make sure it is recorded when a new episode comes on. Bobbi really brought me out of my shell and her funny jokes made me look even cooler when I came back home ;) bobbs, even though I rarely saw you, you meant a lot to me. I'll see you soon, you'll forever be in our hearts. RIP"
"Bobbi you were the best sister I could have ever asked for. I'm so grateful that god blessed me with someone like you. One of my favorite memories is when we broke open a stink bomb on the bus before school LOL. We went through some hard times together and I couldn't have done it without you. I never thought you'd be called home this soon but I know you're in good hands and I'll see you again someday. Such a beautiful person inside and out, I will love you and miss you for the rest of my life. May your soul be at peace <3"
"Bobbi, you are the most amazing person I have ever met. You will always be missed and your memory will always be cherished. You have touched a countless number of lives. I know you have touched my life in a great way. I love you Bobbi. Thank you for being a part of my life."
"I never did get to meet Bobbi. I only knew her through family and pictures. She was obviously a wonderful person and a wonderful treasure to my lovely cousin Tina. We will never understand why someone is taken at such a young age. I had several former students who also had short lives. My thoughts and prayers are always with you."
"What a beautiful tribute to an exquisite woman. My only regret is that I didn't get to meet Bobbi until about three years ago. When I was around her, she made me happy and she did that with everyone she met. She was funny, quirky yet very sensitive to everyone around her.
Her time on this Earth was not enough. Those who loved and mourn her are dealing with that loss. My heart-felt prayers and sympathy to her whole family and the love of her life, Demetrius. May you all find peace and comfort in knowing that Bobbi touched many people the short time she was here.
God Bless You All! God speed Bobbi till I see you again and get my hug.
