There were two songs he was known for singing. One of the songs was the barney “I love you” song and the “I’m just a nobody” by the Williams brothers.

He also had a habit of calling you in the wee hours of the mornings.

    Bro Darryl, Sis Carolyn and Family-
    Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family as the Lord comforts you and your loved ones.

  3. To my brother David Hobson, my heart is hurting at the moment. Please know you are loved. I haven’t forgotten about you. Your departure is a constant reminder of the importance of family and how we neglect our loved ones. Please forgive me, David. I fried you some chicken before you died but I didn’t have away to bring it to you, I guess I want you to know I was thinking of you, I should’ve tried harder , I could have caught the bus. There isn’t any excuses. No one should go hungry, suffer and die alone. I just want you to know you are loved your sister, Maria

    David today is Christmas Eve. I Just want you to know you are loved and missed. If only life had a rewind button. It doesn’t, we can only move forward. I know you are at peace with Leatha, grandmother Sowell, papa, mom and Andrew. My heart hurts.
    If heaven could just give me just one moment ,
    the conversation wouldn’t be very long,
    I wouldn’t mention the things we never got to do,
    I would simply tell you how much I love you,
    I would hug you for every hug you never had,
    I would let you know that your life mattered though cut short and sometimes very sad,
    God’s plans often misunderstood but his way is perfect, you were created in his image to bring him glory,
    Before you were formed he knew you,
    you were already in his story,
    Before you shed your first tear, he wrote it in his book,
    the promise to wipe them away.
    Before you took your first breath your life was ordained,
    God loved you from eternity,
    You were always his son,
    we may not understand the creators reasons , know he engraved you in his right hand,
    God seen your pain and called you home.
    Your birth and departure was in his plan.
