I am praying for your family here on earth as you are with Jesus. You were such a kind and wonderful person that always made me laugh. I will truly miss you. I am signing out as “Money” because that is the name that you always called me. I know that you are laughing right now as I am writing this message.

We the Dudley family, have been friends and neighbors of Bobby for many, many years in Campbell Creek. Bobby was always so nice and always outside caring for his yard and his cars.

To the Washington Family, I was surprised and saddened to hear about Bobby (Peter) passing. He was such a good guy with a very good personality with a heart of gold. I called him nephew “Peter” , and I thanked him for allowing me to be his adopted aunt. I know that he is looking down smiling on each of us now. Keeping the family in my warmest thoughts as you navigate this difficult time and wishing you hope and healing. Remember Earth has no sorrow that Heaven cannot heal. With Deepest Sympathy Auntie

My deepest and heartfelt condolences to the Washington family. Bobby “Big Daddy Washington” knew how to dress and he wore the right cologne ( he smelled good all the time)for every occasion. I remember Bobby referring to himself as a “Tall Glass of Water”… Bobby I appreciate having the opportunity to have known you…Rest In Peace!

To Mrs. Bessie Washington and her entire family, I send my deepest condolences for your loss. Bobby and his brothers, Earl and Sherwood, helped me and my siblings (Millie, Lulu and Charles) feel welcome when we moved mid school year to the Noel / Beaverdam area. I remember Bobby had such a friendly disposition. I apologize for not being able to attend the services. Please know that my thoughts are with your family in this difficult time. In our times of deepest need, the tenderness and grace of Christ is a refuge like no other. He alone understands our sorrows and draws near in love to wipe away our tears. Praying that His comfort and assurance will give you peace in your time of loss. With Deepest Sympathy.

I met Bobby 30 years ago when I started working at Bear Island. He always had a smile on his face and could make you laugh no matter how bad your day was. He was always clean cut and swore he was cool. We had a lot of fun over the years giving each other a hard time. Bobby was always trying to trim down so he could look good in his suits. I decided at one time to join the YMCA to start improving my heath. This is when I met Sherwood who had an impact on my life as well. I always told Bobby that he should hang with Sherwood more to get in shape. Sherwood was no joke, he would break a person down getting them fit. My condolences to the Washington family for your loss. Your family has produced some great men who will be deeply missed.

To the Washington family,may God bless all of you as you deal with your sorrow. It seems so unfair that death has this power to take our love ones that we can’t any longer see, hug or talk to, but that will all change when you get to see your love one again on the resurrection…the best friend a bereaved one can have is good ,so allow him to help you through your grief..never forgetting the power of prayer.Sorry for the loss

My longtime friend gone to soon.But that the living of life not knowing and do not want to know when our time has come. Bobby was a hard working man. A true friend ,nobody I know never had a negative thought about him. Wonderful parents ,brothers and sisters. I will missed Bobby a lot. When we see each other at Food Lion or Exxon we will talk for a hour or so.I can go on and on for my condolence to the family and my thought of my best friend, but that why we have memories. Bobby God has already spoken no need to worry about anything ,except for hurting hearts. God bless you Bobby.
