We were shocked and deeply saddened to learn of Robert's passing. Over the past 18 months, God has called home five members of the extended family of Ira and Eula Mae Williams. We rarely understand God's plan, but we are confident in his love for each of us and the homecoming that awaits our loved ones. Our thoughts and prayers are with you at this time. We hope that the memories of Robert will comfort you and aid in the easing of the pain his loss.

The family of Lucy and Toby Craft
