Those we love don’t go away,
They walk beside us everyday.
Unseen, unheard, but always near.
Still loved, still missed, and very dear.

Robert Barrera was my cousin. What I most remember is his kindness. His was always a gentleman and made sure I was always safe. My Mom and his were sisters, our family would visit every summer. Since I was younger, my aunt, his mom would always make sure I were taken care of. Robert and his brother Domingo would make sure of that.
He always had a unforgettable smile,
My deepest condolences to his children and family. Blessings, you will be in my prayers. Stay Safe MHG
