Mac and Dennis, I'm so sorry for the loss of your mom! She was a very special lady that was close to my heart! I will forever be grateful for the time I got to spend with her and take care of her. I'll miss our daily conversations and sharing pictures with her. I wish I could hear her say "I've missed you while you were off, I'm glad your back!"  Prayers to you and your families as you go through this difficult time. She will be missed terribly ♥️  -Randi

I am very sorry for your loss. Bobbie was a very sweet lady. She was a good friend of my mother (Grace Harper) at the Calvary Baptist Church in Avondale. My mother will welcome her with open arms in Heaven. I will pray for your family to find comfort in her memories during this time. God Bless you all.

My name is Sandy and I was a waitress at The Avon Grove Dinner back in the day. While having cause to visit this site, I recognized Bobbie's photo right away~ Just as I remember her! At the AGD everyone knew the other and we were like our own little family ! Roy and Bobbie were part of that family! God Bless the Spencer Family~
