♥ ♥ ~ My Beloved Uncle Buddy ~ ♥ ♥


Buddy suffered from a Charcot-Marie Tooth, which affected him severly in his later years. After the death of his mother in 1945, he helped to raise his younger sister, Ethel Mae Mobley. He joined the Navy at the age of 17, and while he was still in the service he met and married my wonderful Aunt Wanda. They lived in Indianapolis until moving to Tampa about 1972 or 1973.

Robert Edwin Mobley was the son of Phillip Robert Mobley and Luella Pearl Hopwood. He married Wanda Marie Groves on December 5, 1959. And Wanda remained his faithful companion until his death.

Their children:

1. Teresa Marie "Teesie" Mobley born May 3, 1960 in Indianapolis, Marion County, IN. (Killed by a drunk driver in Tampa, FL)

2. Concetta Ann "Connie" Mobley born: LIVING.

3. Robert Gayle Mobley born: LIVING.

Precious is your memory,
It hurts to hear your name;
I've grown to realize daily,
my life won't be the same.

Although I know in heaven,
there is no pain or grief.
My heart it just can't grasp it,
It hurts beyond belief.

But as I look to heaven,
beyond the clouds and sky,
I know to wipe away the tears,
because this is not goodbye.
