A Word from Cleta about Robert.

In Robert’s wife’s eye’s he was the love of her life. Robert was a guy that loved life, loved to be picked on by his friends: (that was one way that he knew the you loved him).

He loved playing golf with the guys at church or any other sports they did, he tried it with them. If there was anything going on at church, he was going to be a part of it. He loved his church and his church family. He sang in the choir, drove the church van and most of all, he loved serving Jesus.

He loved the Green Bay Packers, Alabama Crimson Tide football and loved playing Golf Clash online with his brother-in-law, Gary. Robert was a down to earth guy who enjoyed living the life to its fullest every.

Uncle Robert you will be missed by so many but you have gained your wings. I remember when I was just a girl staying at your house and you eating Cookie Crisp in a giant bowl for breakfast. Also when you played Jesus at a play at church and we knew it was you because of your arm.
Cleta my heart goes out to you and I’m sharing in your sorrow. No words can describe how sorry I am for your loss.
God knows and sees all and He’s with you during this valley too. I will be praying for you and your family! May the Lord bless you and comfort you. The Lord is close to the broken-hearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit. Psalm 34:18 Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted. Matthew 5:4
All my love and my thoughts & prayers are with you . Sending love & hugs from Wisconsin; May the lord wrap you in His arms. Live the Santiago’s

Uncle Robert, You will be missed by me and so many others. Though you started to get up there in age, you have always been and still were a child at heart (and you thought in body! Ha!)
I couldn't of asked for a better uncle and I will forever cherish all the memories and times that we all shared together until we meet again!
You were a wonderful man of God and I can only imagine the joy and happiness you are having in Heaven with Jesus, Christina, and all those who have went before you.
I love you so much and this isn't "goodbye," it's "see you later!" I look forward to the day I can meet you there and expect you to show me all the beauty and love you're experiencing now resting in the arms of our Lord! Until we meet again, I love you ❤️

Uncle Robert, I love you very much. It was great to see you and Aunt Cleta last summer when you came for mommas funeral, I wished it could have been happier circumstances. With me living far away it's hard. I always loved talking with you and Aunt Cleta, you're the uncle to go to, you were the cool uncle that would hang out with us. You were 11 years old when I was born, you never forgot what it was like being a kid ,you understood. You knew how to cheer people up and make them laugh. I'm gonna miss that about you. Love and thoughts of you always.

Aunt Cleta,
I love you very much. I wish I could hug you . I know that your faith and trust in God will to see you through this. He is with you always. He sees your tears. His loving arms are wrapped around you. The pain,hurt and sorrow that you're feeling , I can't even imagine it. God is close to the brokenhearted. He is walking with you through this storm.
Matthew 5:4(NKJV), Blessed are those who mourn, For they shall be comforted.
Psalm 147:3(NKJV)
He heals the brokenhearted And binds up their wounds.
Psalm 34:18(NKJV)
The Lord is near to those who have a broken heart, And saves such as have a contrite spirit.
Psalm 18:2(NKJV)
The Lord is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer; My God, my strength, in whom I will trust; My shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold.

You're in my thoughts and prayers daily. One day, you'll see him and your daughter again. Oh what a joyous and Glorious Day that will be.
Love you very much always,

Evon, Carl Brown
