Robert, my "brother from another mother"..... my life was so much better for having him in it...even for just a brief time. I count Robert as one of the dearest friends of my lifetime. My heart and love goes out to you Tony, my other "brother from another mother", Brian, Lavern, Lavonne, Deb and the rest of the family. Robert was a force, he was a gentle giant, any one who knew him loved him....it was hard not too. And although it is many years since I have spent time with Robert, he will always remain one of the greats of my life. You are dearly missed my friend. With much love, Peggy

For a brother and dear friend certainly, indeed. God gifted my family and friends with knowing you for nearly 6 years. We have recalled so many countless memories together with us all through these years. Funny , even our hard challenges gave us something to laugh at. I mean, it has been a journey full amazing triumphs! So many conversations and questions pondered... and one day the Chapters of life blew in the wind. It changed. How? Man, life is wind. We do not hold it for ourselves or for the ones we love dearly. I gave you your flowers while your were here. You know, the girls will never forget what you taught them about life and they doing well for themselves. All the kids will be fine.
I cannot say one more thing Robert to you. I do not wish you back ...this world had no more to offer and heaven's glad reward found you the other day. I can never forget you. I will take my peace knowing you are not toiling with pains and moral cares. You are not here because God sent you Rest. So,I will see you there one day when we cry no more.

We can look forward to the day when there will be no more sickness and death. Revelation 21:4 says: "And he (God) will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away". Please accept my sincere condolences. Always remember God loves you and he cares for you! (Psalm 34:18; Psalm 147:3)
