Mary and Family,
Linda and I have always really enjoyed visiting with Bobby and you. I played many domino games with Bobby when living in the Woodlawn area. He always had an upbeat attitude and I thought the world of him. May God bless all of your family during this time. Larry and Linda Austin

I have many fond memories of Mr. Bobby as I referred to him. Loved going to his farm and he even conned me into helping him bail hay one summer, talk about a "learning" experience. Memories include going to the Dixon house to watch my first color TV show, Bonanza. Also remember him as owning the first air conditioned vehicle I ever saw. I remember it being like a 65 or 66 Ford Fairlane, that when I walked out of my house to see my mom with the top half of her body stuck inside the window on Mary's side and my dad doing the same in Mr. Bobby's side. Keeping all these memories and the entire Dixon family in my thoughts and prayers.
