    To Bobbie's Family,
    Jim and I extend our condolences to you at this time of loss. She was dealt a hand for which she certainly didn't deserve. The last time I saw her was at the Hintzman reunion where we celebrated your 50th Wedding anniversary, Harvey. We remember you in our thoughts and prayers.

    Mrs. Hintzman was a rock for me in my youth and as I journeyed through adulthood. I met her when I was 15. Her daughter Amy is my best friend and I thank God for the Hintzman family moving to Florida in 1985. Mrs. Hintzman was a meticulous housekeeper, a phenomenal cook, and a fabulous decorator (understatement). Her home was a HOME . . . so welcoming, beautiful, and comfortable. I loved spending time with the Hintzmans in their home! Mrs. Hintzman had a wonderful sense of humor. She showed motherly love every single time I saw her. She will always remain one of the most positive and influential people in my life. My heartfelt condolences to Amy, Dave, Jeff, Donna, Mr. Hintzman, the grandchildren and great grand child, relatives, friends, and all who knew and loved Mrs. Hintzman. She was a true gem. The most precious gem ever. ♡
