Bobby and I used to drink over the phone, I saved his life twice, I am sorry I could not save it again. I love his art, I bought so much of it that he sold again to other peolple, That was Bobby, Mortal with a sense of Humour.

Please send me the 911 prints, they are great. His market will be enthusiastic. Love Prescott

Besides being a huge Rude Boys fan- which launched all the boys into rockstardom in my eyes!...I have two very fond memories of Bobby- One-him racing down 3rd Ave in NY playing slip 'n' slide for kicks on the ice covered sidewalk- temp in the negatives- wind chill worse- no person or cab in sight-Two-him racing to be the first one to the tide on Venice Beach after dinner just to feel the sand between his toes- and felt like a late night swim. I always admired his spontaneity- what a great lover of life! I feel very blessed to have known him
my love to the family

A Few days befor Bobby P. moved on, he came by my house in Kerrville and spent the night with me, Shaneye and my daughter Grace. He came to town to change some paintings out at a Kerrville gallery. That night he gave us one of his paintings and he hung it in our house where he thought it should hang. We laughed about the things that we laughed about for about an hour and a half. He went into the house and he and Shaneye gave Grace a bath and put her to bed. The next day we got up ate bagels, looked at all of ours and our friends de-funked URL’s on line and listened to the morning news all while gayly gossiping about the people that we loved. We hugged and he left.
I don’t think that either Bobby are myself ever spoke in normal voices when we were around one another. Our voices were more along the lines of...well..huh...Two Lesbian women trapped in-side of two red-necks bodies. But it sounded more like two men on the verge of tears. With a hint of gayety. It’s what we did. So...anyway... I sure do miss the #@*%!er...This land is not our home, we’re just passin’ through.
Praise be to God for Bobby!
I know your not really gone...

Dear Eddy:
It truly breaks my heart to know what you and your parents have been going through these past months. Unfortunately I have first hand knowledge of what it's like to lose people close to you and that it's the hardest thing in the world to try to come to terms with such a personal loss.

Bobby was a great guy. Although I didn't know him well, I remember visiting both of you in New York (oh so many years ago) and what stood out to me most was that he was such an incredibly sweet person. I know he is missed by many.

I just want you to know that you always have a friend in me and you and your parents will continue to be in my thoughts and prayers.

Love always-
Susan

We have known and loved the Patterson family, as we watched Eddy and Bobby grow into fine young men--through church youth groups and musical productions (especially 1982 Music Man) and through other notable events in our First United Methodist Lubbock family. What talented adults they grew to be! Kirsten, you have created a beautiful tribute and wonderful medium for displaying Bobby's work and thoughts. Jeannie, Tommy, and Eddy, we grieve with you and for you and for Kirsten, and know we will all be reunited "in the sweet bye and bye." God bless you all. With love from the Willis family.

Tommy - Jeannie - Eddy - As a friend of the family my family's heart goes out to all of you. I pray that the warmth and energy that introduced my name to yours will also warm your hearts and all those who mourn and celebrate REPs movement onward. Eternal happiness and graces to your spaces - thank you for the friend that i call true and the teacher that we found in each other while exploring life together. TEARS FINALLY of sadness and joy of knowing that the fear of not seeing him for a while stands with me. My goodness how fragile we are and how happy and at peace his mind and soul made me feel - ALWAYS. I vow to carry with me - always - stories honoring him and our shared times. I feel full of life and love and art and music and I hope the creator can handle these magically memories of two little devils breathing alongside his carrying it upwards. In prayer, I hope that one day soon God finds us side by side and in laughter again and forever.

To Eddy and family,
You are in my prayers and I think of you and Bobby daily. I was so sorry to hear about Bobby and am still having a hard time believing it is true. Bobby was always so nice to everyone. If you were ever feeling down, all you would have to do was run into Bobby and the next thing you know... your laughing and smiling. I will miss him forever.

Dear Eddy ,
Always holding you and your family in the highest regard, I pray daily for you and yours. Bobby had this outstanding aura and smile that let dreamers dream and screamers scream. His genius is more than art but love and friendship that endured though years. Gifts survive as you carry his spirit.
Lucky you! To be his brother . Lucky him! For being yours.
At age five my daughter met Bobby. He took the time to share his art and dog . She called him the "Mad artist" and came home to copy his work. Awesome. He lives!
We love you,
Carmen, Nicholas and Gracie

Bobby always saw the best in people and would always supply us with a hug and a smile. The moments we shared with such a fine gentlemen will never be forgotten, but will always be missed. Bobby always held a special place in the hearts of myself and my family. Anyone who ever met Bobby knows exactly what I mean when I say, "We Were Lucky"! I look forward to seeing you again, my friend! Gabor

Bobby opened Austin Modern next door to my gallery, he immediately wanted to coordinate our evening events. He was so friendly and supportive.

He had the idea to have a block party and he made it happen. Thanks to his efforts a dozen or so buisness owners who had never met, all opened their doors for the very successfull event "Electric Avenue". He brought everyone together and he created a really friendly neighborhood.

I first met bobby at his down town location and had many a good time enjoying his vision for the arts and meeting new and exciting people. I attended his last showing off of south lamar and feel blessed to have been there and to have enjoyed one last showing with him and all his friends he will be missed.

Having watched Bobby and Eddie grow up in Lubbock while I was in college was to see such fire and energy. After those years, Bobby took up his art space in my neighborhood in Soho. From his band days with the Rude Boys to his days in NYC to the last time I saw hin in Austin our paths seem to cross alot. Those snapshots were perfect, just perfect for watching that fire burn bright with love, kindness, talent and a childlike wonder at the world. When I heard the news, early in the morning from a mutal friend calling from the West coast, about Bobby's passing I sat and cried. He was wonderful and I will miss not crossing his path here in this world.

Tommy, it was great having lunch with you today and catching up. I have been on this website for 30 minutes with my heart in my throat. I am so sorry that I never had the privilege of knowing your son. What a great testament he obviously was and will remain to you and Jeannie. God bless you all.

The Patterson's are my friends. I am sorry to say that I haven't seen the "boys" since they were in high school. However, they were both wonderful boys. To say that I knew the extent of Bobby's talents would be a lie. Now that I read about his being, his art and love for humanity, I know that I missed a lot. I pray that HIS family and HIS friends don't let the sorrow of losing him overcome the joy that he gave them.
With love, JB

I only really knew Bobby as a little tike, but even then his love of the eccentric was present,his talent enormous and his love of family has always been evident. His brother Eddy was his stability. His Mom and Dad his rock. We have all gained by his presence and his love of and his contribution to the arts.
