Tio Robert,
The first time we met we just clicked and we laughed and joked aroud the whole time. You were so kind, not just to me, but my daughters. We absolutely loved your company and are going to miss you so, so much. Tio picked a great partner and I know that he, along with us, will carry you in our hearts until we meet again. ❤️

Robert, I met you the summer of 2019. You and Roger opened up your home to me while in south Texas. The conversations we had were meaningful and at moments hilarious. I wish I’d have had more time with you on this earth but I feel confident we will meet again to continue our shenanigans. Rest easy my good friend.

I will forever cherish our breakfast get togethers (Roy, Robert, Lidia, and myself). We had such a good time and so much laughter.

My Robert,
The last four years were the best ones of my life being with you. It was an honor knowing such a wonderful and giving person as you. You were always such a happy man. I will forever miss you, my love. I can’t imagine life without you.
You are forever in my heart. Love you always and forever, Rogelio
