Betty Ray & family: My Mom (Catherine (nee Arnold) Pabst) and I were very sorry to learn of Bobby's recent illness and passing. My Mom has a lot of good memories of Bobby, dating to her childhood. Her late father, A. W. ("Allie") Arnold, always thought very highly of Bobby and commented that he was one of his favorite nephews. You are all in our thoughts & prayers during this difficult time. May happier memories of better days sustain you in the days ahead.
Warm regards, Brian R. Pabst & Catherine (nee Arnold) Pabst
