In High School Reggie Hensley was the love of my life. He was my first everything. Reggie was a spoiled brat and I loved being his girlfriend. He was my first everything and the cutest boy in the school. He had everything a kid could have including clothes and a nice ride while everyone else was driving beaters. Mr. Hensley would not have it any other way. He was fun and had the goofiest laugh. Unfortunately, after graduation we did not get to see each other except for 1-time but we both went on with our lives. He drove his big sister Robbie crazy and I would alway take up for her....being the lil brat brother. He loved his click, Robert, Maurice & Eric. Those were his boys. I am very sad that I did not get a chance to say goodbye but I am sure that being in Gods arms is truly a reward for not being here. My condolences go out to Mr. Hensley & Robinette and to the loved ones that was in Reggies life. Losing a loved one is just devastating but in time God will give you peace. Love You

Bobbette was born Bobbette Rae Carter on the 21st day of July in the summer of 1961 to Johnnie Bell Carter and Clyde Dean Carter in St. Louis, Missouri. She was the last of four children. After a few years in St. Louis, Bobbette and her family moved to East Palo Alto, California where she spent the younger years of childhood. Bobbette moved back to St. Louis in 1969. As a proud graduate of Normandy Sr. High School, class of 1979, she exemplified school spirit. She continued her education onward at Northeast Missouri State (now Truman).
Bobbette found her career at General Motors where she worked diligently for over 20 plus years. Some of the best people in her life, she found in that plant. There, she cultivated and fostered relationships with the people around her, relationships that would grow and grow, lasting a lifetime and beyond. Relationships that her friends and family will carry on in her honor. A truly kind and friendly soul, she strived to make pleoples' lives around her better in any way she could. She was a beacon of light wherever she entered.
Bobbette married Eric Lilly in May of 1989--a marriage of 19 years. Out of this union, two beautiful sons were born, Dusten Alexzander Lilly and Chase Michael Lilly. A devoted mother, she loved her two sons like no other mother could. She epitomized motherhood and raised two young black men in a world designed to tear them down. Bobbette's love and devotion carried over to her granddaughter, Sia Alexandra Lilly whom she loved with all her being. Proudly proclaiming her as the daughter she had always wanted. Her only granddaughter brought a new joy into her life that she proudly screadmed from the rooftops to the mountains sides. A child couldn't ask for a better Nana. She lived for all her children whom she devoted her life to in more ways then one. From babies, to boys, to men--guiding, nurturing, and loving them to the men they are today. She personified not only motherhood but womanhood.
Bobbette Lilly leaves to honor her legacy her children, Dusten Alexzander Lilly, Chase Michael Lilly; granddaughter, Sia Alexzandra Lilly; siblings, Janice Denise Bradshaw, L.C. Dodson Jr., Shonn Latimer and Gwendolyn Gholar; best friendss, Debra Tolliver, Tiffany Butler, Davina Dupree and Drena Ross, and a host of other family and friends.
Darryl was the youngest of five children and the only boy born to Mossie and Aszlee Pascal. As a young child, he always received what he wanted. I guess you can say he was spoiled rotten. He loved playing baseball and basketball during his younger days. Darryl had a basketball hoop atop of our parents’ garage. All the neighborhood young and older boys would come to play. Often, the older boys would take over the game and Darryl would cheer on his favorite player. I loved playing with my brother and oldest niece Michelle even if we fussed and fought over trivial things. We were so close that if one misbehaved, we were all punished. I remember the times he would sing school songs as well as make up silly songs and phrases. He was a comedian just like me. Those were the good ole days. After our father died from a lengthy illness, my brother changed. Darryl was always a happy person but I think he wanted to be more like the older boys in the neighborhood. You know how first impressions make a lasting impression. He finished high school during the summer of ‘79. That was one goal Darryl struggled to accomplish. However, our Mother was determined to make it happen. She prayed as most Mothers should. Darryl met his untimely death at the age of 28. There isn’t a day that goes by without a constant reminder of him. His jokes, infectious smile, and continuous laughter shall never be forgotten!
