Robert and Janet were the first people we met when we bought our home in Portrait Hill. They were both so friendly and kind. We are so sorry to hear this sad news. Our hearts go out to Janet and their families. RIP Robert.

Richard and Gail and other family members, I am so sorry to hear of Robert's passing. I live in Harvest Glen and he and Connie became good friends with so many while they lived here. I was blessed to be one of their friends. Always willing to help others, they were truly the hands and feet of God. They spread love and caring to all with whom they met. Please accept my deepest condolences.

God's peace,
Curry Nelms
