    Bobby was a dear friend of both Bob and Barbara (Romano) Crisafi. Bob was a very special person who is cradled in the arms of Jesus from the very instance of his passing. He was truly a God gifted person who never complained about the cross he carried through many years of illness. From Bob, you never heard a negative judgment of his neighbor because he loved his neighbors with a pure heart. I have been blessed to have had several memorable discussions with Bob about our faith…I’m thankful for those discussions. Growing up, Barbara was a close neighbor of Bobby and a classmate in grammar school. To Marie and the Tully children…you have been bestowed with a very special Husband and Father. May God Bless the Tully family..
