I have very fond memories of Robert. When Robert and Martha were at my brother's family gatherings, Robert was always very happy and cheerful. Also, when we were in places that had Mariachis playing, Robert would always request the song "GEMA" for his beloved Martha. Now, when I hear Gema playing, I always think very fondly of Robert.

Robert, May you rest in peace.

My condolences to Martha and the Gallardo family.

My condolences to the Gallardo family. Robert and my father (Rudy) were cousins who worked together as pharmacist at Hotel Dieu Hospital. My father had nothing but good things to say about Robert. May he rest in peace.
