Rest in Peace, Bobby

Bobby One So True, We'll always love you.

July 26, 1938 - August 3, 2010


Sunny, you smiled at me and really eased the pain.
The dark days are gone, and the bright days are here,
My Sunny one shines so sincere.
Sunny one so true, I love you.


Rest in peace, Bobby



My tribute to Bobby in the Gloucester and Salem papers as well as
North Shore Sunday

It goes without saying that at 8:38 PM EDT this evening, we are sad, shocked and feel a terrible loss over our friend Bobby Hebb... a true "gentleman", a musical genius and giant, and just a wonderful human being.

We're working on an essay to express how this man's creativity touched millions and millions of people around the world.

Bobby passed away at 10:50 AM this morning, Central time.

His 72nd birthday was last week. We got to speak on the phone.

Bobby was happy to receive a number of birthday wishes from people who were at the Haverhill, Massachusetts TV station who signed a birthday card/note for him. Bobby enjoyed many Happy Birthday wishes last week, and passed on eight days later. Thanks to everyone who wrote to him and those of you who keep him in your prayers and thoughts.

He was a friend to everyone who knew him...

We love you, Bobby
