i was deeply saddened to learn of bobby's passing. i only knew him as a friend of my boyfriend back in the early 90's but always liked bobby and always remembered him fondly. actually, i always remembered his smile and his bright spirit. he was naturally kind and playful -- great energy. i am sorry for all of you who knew and loved him. please know he is in my prayers for eternal peace on the other side.

What a wonderful tribute to Bobby and how privileged I feel to have this glimpse of his adult life. My memories of Bobby are from an easier time. I remember flag football on crisp fall days, summer days that seemed like they'd never end, family dinners, chocolate chip cookies, and lots of love and laughter at the Patterson home. I can see through Bobby's beautiful works of art and through the pouring out of so many hearts that the love and laughter remained with Bobby. What more can we ask for in this imperfect place? Tommy, Jeannie, and Eddy - my heart aches for each of you and for your sweet Bobby. Through the grace of God an awkward peace will emerge. You all remain in my thoughts and prayers. Always with love, Dawn

To the Patterson Family, what a special soul you brought into the world. I know Bobby mostly from childhood, we performed in the Music Man and Jesus Christ Superstar together. We had those wonderful conversations about our newest crush. He vowed he would never tell I kissed King Mahon backstage. He drove me crazy in Jesus Christ Superstar always changing the blocking mid show and taking me up to the highest scaffold, when I was afraid of heights. And I loved him dearly as awnry as he was! I send blessings to whatever his next role may be... With love, light, and gratitude, Shelley

The first time I ever saw Bobby was when he played WInthrop in The Music Man. I was blown away by how talented he was. Always after that, even to when I saw him last July 4th, I think of him as a little boy performing on stage. He was always a bright spirit and always made me laugh.

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.
