So very sad and sorry to hear of Bobby's passing on. We met Bobby in the writing class and came to appreciate her warm compassionate poems, and gentle, wry humour. We shall all miss her so very much.

I am so saddened at the loss of my dear friend Bobby. Her astounding creativity, determination, cleverness and sense of humour made her a wonderfully independent soul. It was a privilege to be a part of her life and I shall miss her deeply.

Bobby was one of the most amazing people I had the pleasure of calling friend. She was strong, smart, thoughtful, intensely creative and had a wicked sense of humour. She helped bring out the best in people, was a genuine, loving friend and supported one through the ups and downs of life. With her guidance and encouragement, I continued to unlock a passion for acrylic painting. I was also honoured to illustrate 3 of her children's novels and shared in the Canadian Magazine's 1st prize, the Daryn Tsuji award for our book "Naughty Nutcap". She will be greatly missed by all who knew her and her enduring passion and love of life.

I'm so sorry to hear about Bobby's sudden passing. I've lived across the street from her and while I didn't know her very well, she was always so kind, friendly and welcoming. Bobby showed a few of us around her writing room and beautiful art. I remember the day that she had just received one of her own books in the mail, straight from the publisher, and she was so proud and delighted to see it come to life. Her excitement was contagious. She will be missed.

My deepest sympathies. Our paths crossed at a much-loved writing group and spilled over into a friendship. I will miss her advice and guidance and her joie de vivre. We both shared a love of painting and a love of writing. She taught me to read out loud into a corner to see how a phrase I thought was well-turned sounded trite and hollow. She helped me cope with my husband's diagnosis of Parkinson's, prostate cancer and heart murmur when I thought I would drown with the weight of it. I will miss lunches at Denny's and her marmalade and her shortbread. I will miss her wisdom. I will miss her twinkling blue eyes and her quick wit. I will miss her smile. She was the very definition of a lady and I will miss her sorely.
