It was a honor to have an opportunity to be at your bedside during your last days on earth. I enjoyed listening to you sing your favorite song to Melanie and I. Thank you for the moments we shared together. May God continue to bless your family and friends as they grief your loss.

Robert was a kind soul with a big heart. A great friend and a great fisherman who I will always remember fondly. He had a great sense of humor. He was always ready to draw first in a bird-flipping duel. He spoke Spanish really well and knew "Jaws" word for word. Ha! Miss you, Buddy!
