Dear Liz, Bill, Mary, Peter, Julie and Tim

My belated condolences on the passing of your dad. Uncle Robert was a kind and gentle soul and I have many fond memories of him from my childhood. He seemed the least argumentative of his siblings, and he always smiled easily. I only remember one time seeing him upset, when he came down in Grandpa's basement and gave us hell for teasing one of you guys - I know we had it coming!
My thoughts are with all of you and I will keep your dad and mom in my prayers.

Uncle Robert was a good man who endured pain throughout most of his adult life. "Out of suffering have emerged the strongest souls; the most massive characters are seared with scars." (K. Gibran)
May he finally be at rest for eternity.
