Uncle Bobby J...May 6 has passed me by...20 years since you got taken from us. I hope my dad & grandpa are up there with you...I lost them both in 2016. Is Joe Perez up there making you laugh...we lost him too. Not a day goes by that I don't think of you. I miss you constantly. I am going to take a trip out to your crash site soon in Casa Grande. I believe I'm the only family that never got to go since I live in Austin. You are forever in my heart. I miss you. Casa Grande & Ft. Bliss soon to pay my respects to you.
