I took care of Bobby at Spring Arbor of Winchester. He always made work easier, and always put a smile on my face. I loved every second I spent with him and he had such a sweet heart. I was blessed to take care of such a wonderful man. I’ll never forget the time I walked past him in the living room and he held out his hand to grab mine and said “Could you say the Lord’s prayer with me? I seemed to of forgotten the words.” After reciting the prayer, he kissed my hand and said “Thank you honey”. I love Bobby with all my heart and work is truly not the same without him there.

Soon after I moved to Winchester I met Bob at the hospital as he volunteered for Meals on Wheels. We met in the kitchen at Winchester Medical Center. He kept things moving when he took over the schedule of the routes. He made sure every client was getting their meals. From that experience I came to know Bob as a friend. He loved soup and when he was not well or could not make it in I would drop him some off at his home occasionally with some homemade bread. He always wanted to have me come in and I was able have some very friendly chats with him. If it was gardening season he wanted to share his tomatoes and peppers. One think I regret was never getting a tour from him at the Washington Office another volunteer opportunity he completed with enthusiasm and professionalism. I must say I am a better person because of my opportunity to learn from Bob. Thank you for the many conversations and times we spent together. My sincerest condolences to the entire family, I for one will miss Bob you made a difference!

Bobby was one of the very first to greet us the 8:45 am Sunday service at Braddock Street UMC church a few years ago. Every Sunday morning since then my wife and I, and our little son, always looked forward to his warm greeting and friendly smile while we shared the pew with him during the service. We were deeply saddened to hear of his loss and will miss seeing him on Sunday mornings, but the warmth and compassion he gave will be remembered by us always. Blessings and Peace be with you, Bobby. Thank you for the time we had with you. From The Hennessey Family.
