Sending love to Bobby's family. The Pierce family were our next door neighbors on Forest Street for years when I was a kid. Bobby was a kind man who made these wonderful (and fast) "go-carts" for his sons Roger and David, who were kind enough to let the neighborhood kids also drive. Rest in peace, Mr. Pierce. Dee Apple

His smile would light up the room. So sweet. He has a special heart, one made up of Love and Understanding. I will surely miss him. Thank you Lord for what time I did get to spend with Bob. Love you. Sandy
