Bobbi was a dear friend mine for the past 15 years. I feel so blessed to have had her as a friend.
I am so sorry for your families loss. I will miss her so much, she was a great mentor for me and I would not be where I am today in a job I love to do if it had not been for her mentoring, encouragement and believing in me. She touched many
lives in her short time on earth and now she is at peace in heaven watching over us. She w
ill always be in my heart. Many hugs to you Myrtle and your family.

I only knew Bobbi for a brief time when she became the Director of the the Emergency Department and Cardiology Services at St. Mary’s Medical Center in San Francisco. She was the type of manager you rarely see anymore, she was kind, just and her door was always open. I am sorry for your loss.

I was so sorry to hear of Bobbi’s passing.She was an excellent school nurse who always treated the students with respect and sincere concern. I enjoyed her sense of humor and her sincere concern for others. May wonderful memories help ease the pain of her loss.

To Barbs family, I am sorry to read of Barb’s death and you all have my thoughts and sympathy. Even though I havn’t seen Barb, or any of you, since she and I graduated from South Central, I still have fun memories of her from our high school days. She had a great sense of humor and always a positive attitude. I remember that she and Janet Lockyer were good friends, and old neightbors. I am sure she was an awesome nurse and that all our patients appreciated her as all of you did. I am sure that she is now at peace. Thinking of you. Ed Walker
