Dear Robert,
I have loved you all of my life as my guardian brother and cousin.
I loved it when you lived with us, visited us, and shared holidays with us.
I loved how mom would dress us up for holidays.
I loved how our families would come together for Mardi Gras.
I loved that we went to school together and made our communion at St. Mary’s Italian.
I loved that we went trick or treating on your birthday and came home with bags of candy.
I loved when we would go to Ponchatrain Beach.
I loved that you protected me as a child and would carry me on your back.
I loved that I could trust you and that you were my confidant because you knew Bart could never keep a secret.
I loved that Granny Bee taught us to be meticulous and clean and Mom taught us the love of renovations. I can’t ever remember living in a house that we didn’t renovate.
I loved that we were both OCD and shared that attribute.
I wish you could still be with us, but I know that your mom, Shirley, your guardian mom, Aunt Gertrude, our Granny Bee are with you now as I write this final message.
I know that you are at peace, that you are feeling glorious joy and happiness, and that you are now living in that perfect house called Heaven. We will all be together again one day.
Love always, Mary Mormino Alack

I've been able to surprise a few people with the level of detail in my childhood memories, and I have a few gems from Uncle Robert.

My favorite toy as child were my construx (80's legos). I remember when Uncle Robert came up with the idea to use every single block. For a 10 year old, that was rad.

I remember looking for a 1980's Nissan Pulsar in the parking lot. In what could have been annoying, instead, we ran around the lot laughing and searching.

I remember crying over some childish thing, and you patting my back until I felt better.

I remember seeing your National Geographic collection and then getting my own Kid's Nat Geo.

I remember giving you my first email address, hotmail.com and you joked, I know we have a Hot Male, what kind of e-mail is this?

I remember asking how you do all that stuff to your house, and you told me that you do it because you love it.

In all my memories there is always love and encouragement. As a young man, I needed that, and now I pass that love and encouragement to anyone who might benefit from it. In that way, your spirit lives on, just as it does in heaven. The next time I'm silently looking for the right words, you'll be there.

My brother,
Although we did not meet until our adult years, I feel blessed to have had a chance to get to know you and your beautiful family. I miss you, but know we will see each other again. RIP and I love you

Both my Uncle Robert and Evonne were there for me and my sisters despite distance after my father's death. They both as a couple made sure during holidays and birthdays that we were not forgotten through phone calls, gifts, cards and letters. I've always appreciated that thoughtfulness and kindness. I didn't truly know value or understand their generosity till i became an adult with children of my own. It goes to show no matter what the circumstances, that a great person will always do great things especially with a wonderful partner to help execute. Thank you Uncle Robert and Evonne for the love you showed me and my sisters. This family is saying good bye to a great man, great soul and heaven gained an angel to help watch over us.

LOVE ALWAYS,
MICHELLE LIGHTELL

Robert was a gem to work with. I believe that he always wanted to do for you something, before you ever knew that you wanted it. We really missed him this past six months, while preparing for Feast Day. Worse, with Robert moving on, we can throw a real 15 year plan out the window because all the data required to start it was in Roberts head.
I dearly appreciate Evonne's patience, considering that Robert was on call 24/7 all these years at St. Michaels.
God's speed to you and yours. Please call if I can help with anything.

When I was in charge of decorating the church sanctuary, Robert was always a great help. I remember holding the 12 foot ladder while he climbed up to hang the banners for me. He was always so kind and accommodating and a wonderful caretaker and steward of our church. I could not have done it without him. Heaven has a new angel named Robert. Peace be with you , Linda Sorlie
