    Mom, I love you, I will never forget what you did for Bobby's children, and How you welcomed my children into Bobby's already large family. It takes a woman with a l.arge heart to step in as mother to your Grandchildren, but it was because of you that Bobby 's children became the wonderful aduilts they are, you did a beautiful job raisng Bobby's children when bobby was deployed, during the chaos and breakup of his marriage to Erlinda, and I know he will never forget it
