I think the grandparents the sister is talking about is the 7 year olds grandparents. They stopped in to pay respect to his family and only had wonderful things to say. They shared a little insight on EVERYONES past which has helped to understand the life brian shared with your sister. As far as going to jail over hurting one of his children. You were not there and he was not arrested until 9 months later and said it was him so the mother would not lose the children and go into foster care. I think the father of your 7 year old neice has primary physical custody of her. HMM... I have been there and I am not by far claiming Brian was a saint, no one is. Some of his family did talk to brian on a regualar basis and seemed to the ones who did Brian and your sister were always arguing and he was always moving out. Everyone is trying to understand what happend and there are only 3 people who know what happened and we will only have one side to the story. Somehting is not right with the way things went down....I guess I will leave you with this... if you were there and running right alongside your sister as you stated in another blog earlier on how did you or your sister leave one of her children behind in the apartment with a "madman" to get help?
id like to comment to this post. your quote " As far as going to jail over hurting one of his children. You were not there and he was not arrested until 9 months later and said it was him so the mother would not lose the children and go into foster care" So im the mother of the child you are talking about. He did hurt his daughter while i ws at work. i got the phone call from the police officer saying that my 3month old daughter was being rushed to the hospital because her father broke her F**KN arm!!!!! he didnt just say he did it so i wouldnt lose my childern!!! he said he was moving her swing lost his balance a stepped on her arm. and yes 9 months later after investigating the case he was arrested.

thank you theresa... 2yrs and 10mths... there's lots of things i would like to say, but i will not on this public forum. And it's not bad, mean, hateful or otherwise... just some things i have had time to reflect upon... some songs that i think you and i both can relate to... and so on and so forth. Hope you and your girls had a happy holiday. And hopefully peace is with you... in your heart and in your surroundings.

Is this the same Brian Bobb that went to Manual High School on the South side of Indianapolis?
If so, I am shocked, as I would never think he would do such a thing. Regardless...it is a very tragic story and from the sounds of it, the police did exactly what needed to be done.

To my knowledge, that is where my brother attended school. And I never thought he would do anything like that either... But he did and paid the price...as did the people he hurt who should not have had to pay the price for his poor judgement.

U have no right saying that to her she did nothing wrong she is an outstanding women, wonderful mother and nobodies family is perfect not even your. all family has demands.

Did he not get 'DIShonorable" discharge from the Marines? Did he not try to kill innocent people in his own fit of rage? Did he also not displace families from their homes because of this rage? And we are giving him a "military honors" funeral, get real people. That prestigous fairwell is for a HERO!! What heroic thing did he do?
I am really sorry that your family member has died but have you ever asked yourself what if the roles were reversed?? What if your boyfriend "SISTER" tried to kill you and your children, would your family not think the same about him as her family feels? I personally don't HATE your brother, I hate what he did.
have u ever heard of post traumatic stress disorder...maybe u should research it and research how many of our troops are effected by it! Educate ur self b4 u cast judgement!

Even though my children and I are the victims of what he did, sadly so is his family. even tho to this day threats and violent words come to me outta left field, i do feel bad for anyone losing someone they love. I will never forgive what he did. My own personal feelings.... Im learning to control. I can on ly hope others will do the same

Theresa, I believe I know who you are referring to... Believe me, I have been blamed too, not threatened, but blamed. I have gone my rounds with this person too...and like you, learning to control it and hope they can learn too. I hope you and your family had a wonderful Christmas! Don't let others bring you down...and worrying about them isn't worth it in the end!:)

Its been years since Ive been on here and I never went back and read anything that anyone said to the post I made..but I was wondering if after all these years your family feels the same? Did you ever come to term with what he did? Have you found peace in your lives like she has and her children have? Maybe you wasn't his Mother but you were someone that was close enough to him to defend him. You made that clear, Do you feel the good about the things you wrote about him and her? I really hope you have found some kind a peace and that your family can cope with the things that take place that awful day. There isn't a day that goes by I don't thank God that her and her kids are still here an that she has moved on and is doing well....May God help you with it if you haven't found it yet...

abusers are liars and manipulators. It takes a woman, on average, 7 times of being abused to leave her abuser for good. abusers also like to make other people believe that the victim somehow deserved it. very sick stuff.
