She always had a laugh that was so contagious, she could get everyone else laughing. My sister has a large heart of gold. And a couple of years ago I had heart surgery and afterwards the doctors said I needed to exercise. So me and Bobbie go garage saleing one day and she found this nice exercise bike, she decides to buy it saying she needed to start using it. The funny thing is, when we got to my house, she unloaded it and said she was going to leave it at my house because she did not have room and I could use it if I wanted to. This was just her way of making sure I exercised.
