Tribute to Bobbin from the Pierre Family

Bobbin has been eulogized by his President and heads of foreign states, remembered by his colleagues, workmates, friends and acquaintances; and even those who knew him for only a few days have had good things to say about him. He was an unassuming person who wore his dignity, honor, and distinction very lightly. He was respected by his acquaintances and loved by his friends. His character secured for him a permanent place of affection in the heart of every one with whom he interacted.
