  1. It was an honour and a pleasure to get to know and care for Bobbie since I started working at Palm Lake Care. Her smile could light up the room and brighten your day. Bobbie, you will be missed.

    1. Jennifer it would have been a privilege looking after, Bobby. She was a delightful human being, and we will miss her. You have a rewarding career, and your Mum would be proud of you.

    2. Bobbie was a sweetie. I had my diary marked to visit on her 100 birthday. For five years we did bingo at PLC with a big and small crowd of players.

  4. Bobby was looking forward to turning 100. We loved engaging with her. She had a great memory, and she always asked after others. She warmed many a heart with her smile and attitude. Discovered her notice a little too late to attend the service. She was much loved. R.I.P. Dear Bobby
