    My husband and I are so truly sorry for y’all’s loss. I’ve heard so many wonderful stories about Bobby and Bonnie through the year’s. I meet Bobby & Bonnie year’s ago through my husband James. Bobby was definitely one of a kind. Bonnie was definitely his match. They both were great people and will truly be missed. Lifting the entire Overton family up in prayer 🙏🙏🙏.

    Met this man when he and Bonnie were dating! He always made us laugh! Wore a shirt with beer cans on it to our reunion because I had asked that no alcohol be at the reunion. It was priceless!! He, Bonnie and so many others in our family are sorely missed. Loved them all!!! Keeping the family in my heart and in my prayers.
