a match, Bobby joined our group of volunteers and became a very important member
of our group, inspiring us all with his persistence and his big heart!
When I asked Bobby what kept him here he responded "The cause we share. I'm proud
to be a part of an organization consisting of people like you and everyone else
who gives their time and efforts for what we believe in regardless of the obstacles
we have to hurdle." Bobby never gives up, no matter how big an obstacle he will find
a way around it!
We are proud to have Bobby as part of the Doe Network, he is an honest, caring and
dedicated volunteer that we would never want to do without. Thanks for all you do Bobby!
