I extend my sincere and deepest sympathies to Jim, sweet Kate, Mr. & Mrs. Johnson, and the entire family who loved and supported Bobbi. I was Bobbi’s Tri Delta big sister at UT. We reconnected after many years through social media. I closely followed her fight. Bobbi has always been a bright, beautiful, sweet soul yet we certainly learned she was one tough woman! Never giving up, always fighting, always advocating for herself & others affected with lung cancer. And at the same time being a loving super-mom & wife. Please know my thoughts, prayers, and broken heart are with you all during this difficult time. Bobbi & I shared the same birthday. She was indeed special. God bless. Denise Profanchik-Stoneman
