We will miss you cuz! It's hard to believe you are gone, you will forever be in our hearts Robert - our entirely family mourns but we are comforted to know you are at peace and with our Lord:

Dear Lord, please comfort us in grief,
Love us, lift us, give relief
For loss we've suffered, sadness felt;
Make this sorrow slowly melt.

Lord, let happy memories ease,
Creating peace like a gentle breeze,
And as you help us all make it through.
Draw us closer, Lord, to you. (by Joanna Fuchs)

Friend you will be missed. You were a joy to work with and a great confidant when it came to helping friends get through tough times. Your spirituality was very uplifting and I am glad to have had you in my life. I will always cherish those fun times driving together to work and having you and Robert Jr. Come to our house to play basketball. I will also keep you always in mt memory.

"Big cousin" you were. Your laughter words of wisdom and joyful spirit always came right on time. I remember the smile you would put on Daddys face I will always remember daddy would saying, "I talked to Rocky today". You had no idea how much that meant to me. I will miss you and so grateful we were family

God saw you were tired and a cure was not to be, So he put his arms around you and whispered come to me, You fought a good fight you finished your course, you kept the faith. I am confident, rather to be absent from the body and to be present with the "Lord"
R.I.H Beloved Robert⚘
