    I know that what you are going through right now is very difficult, just know that we are here for you. We look forward to the time we can welcome him back! We are truly sorry for your loss.

  3. Mrs. Ochoa and family:
    My heart breaks for your loss. I pray for you and your family through this difficult time. Bobby and I were very close as we were growing up. He would always protect me from harm. We were three years apart. Bobby and I and most of our cousins were always at each other’s houses. I always tried to do what he did . I wanted to be able to do all the cool things he could do ! When skateboarding first came out our “Maw” gave us each one. She always wrote our full names on everything. We were always playing and running around outside. This being a time when we only came home At dark or when they were yelling out our names to come home. We didn’t have much but we always had each other and “Momma Lupe”. I am thankful that my brother had you in his life for all these years. I only wish we could have been able to share these memories together in person. May God Comfort and strengthen you as you and your family mourn Bobby’s death. Thank you for caring for him and being in his life.

    Bob was great! What sticks out the most to me is that his smile was everlasting! Always happy! Every time that we seen one another it was always great. He cared about others wellbeing. Family and friends foremost. He would always tell me if I need anything to let him know. He would take the time out to come see me, just to see how I was doing, always asking about the well-being of wife, kids,mom, and dad. He was always happy, as I was happy to see him. He is missed, but in better place with other loved ones! Rest In Peace cousin Bobby!
