Robert as my birthday passes my thoughts are always with you again I hope you and Joe enjoy the beginning of a new baseball season. Life on earth will never be the same but we must hold past close and focus on moving forward. This is a task large in size but again I draw on baseball as a guide. It's game on the line all the world a stage and we will come thru as we always dream. My parents dear friends are watching from above game on line now I have to hit the game winning homer. In short order I will be judged in my closing days of life pray and guide us look over Joes family and enjoy the game. God Bless and pray that my family and Joes family pull thru with grace. Dad

Hey Robert,
Things are pretty tough down here and I'm sure you can see that. We all miss and love you so much. You've been on my mind heavy these past few days not really sure why but I don't mind I keep all our memories close. I still get upset sometimes because you're gone but I stay pretty strong for the most part. Wish my kids could meet you maybe you'd be as important to them as you was for me. But anyways I miss you Robert see you again some day ❤

I am so sorry for your tragedy. I wish I would had a chance to meet your handsome, smart son. He sounds like you raised a wonderful person. The way you talk about him you loved him with all your heart. I do remember holding him when he was a baby. My greatest regret is not keeping in touch with you. I am so glad you have a second son and I am sure with you as his mother guiding him he will turn out to be a wonderful man. I am not a religious person, but I have no doubt Robert is at peace. I am so sorry Jackie for you losing your son. I am sorry I never got a chance to meet this wonderful child/adult. Peg just told me a few days ago. Remember he will always be in your heart and you will always have your memories. Love Shelley McCorkle
