Your sweet wife and mother was known to me as Jeanette rather than Bobbye. We were class mates and best of friends until graduation and our life journey put time and distance between us. Yet, we made an effort to stay in contact with each other and this meant so very much to me. Jeanette had a beautiful heart and love for all who crossed her path. I heart aches for the precious family she left behind. Her legacy will live on for generations to come. My life is better because I knew Bobbye Jeannette Williams Davis.
