Three years ago, Omega Chapter of Theta Chi was blessed with a new Four Diamonds family. We weren’t quite sure who they were or what they were like, but we were excited nonetheless. We met the AJ Bobby family at THON 2011, and our lives have not been the same since.
One of the first things we all remember post THON 2011 was the multitude of brothers exclaiming how the Bobby family was the perfect family for us!
We connected on day one and have formed lifelong friendships with these people. Quite honestly, the Bobby family is a college family.
They’re goofy, energetic, inquisitive, and a little crude at times, but most of all they’re loving. This family has given us so much of themselves, and I’d like to think that we do the same.
Every year countless brothers recall their favorite THON memory as the first time they were tackled by a Bobby child, and just to be clear, Mr. Bobby often falls into this category as well.
The Bobby’s started out as our Four Diamonds family, but they have become so much more. I don’t know of one single brother who wouldn't drop anything at any moment in order to visit that family in a time of need.
We love them more than anything in the world! Those people have touched our hearts and souls and will always be part of each of our brother’s true family. We would go to the end of the world and back to protect those amazing people and losing them would truly mean losing a piece of our souls.
It’s their love that drives us to improve ourselves each year. There's not a thing I wouldn't do for them. They're great people and one of the best things to happen to our fraternity. I'll never be able to thank them enough for everything they've done for me and the house as a whole. Their love is why we THON.
