Robert was one of a kind. I always enjoyed his company. I am sorry I was not able to attend the funeral. It was the day of my son's birthday party.
I feel so very sorry and saddened for his beautiful family. I always figured we would cross paths again but it was not to be. He was one of the most fun,intelligent, funny, and generous guys I have known. Everybody who knew Robert liked him. It is a damn shame he is gone so young. It was awful news to hear about his passing. I really hated to hear that news.
I regret not being in better touch because I did not even know he was ill. Angie ,(if you remember me from the shady hollow school bus route) I am truly so sorry. I just hate it for you and your kids. The pictures of all of you show what a blessing children are and what a rich life he had.
Robert was one of the good ones.

I met Robert in the youth choir at Manchaca UMC. He and James Skipper were a couple of crack ups. Even by himself, Robert could make me laugh. He was never afraid to act silly or look ridiculous if it meant he could get a laugh at his own expense. He was always kind and respectful of others, no matter who they were.
I was fortunate enough to see him as an adult a few years ago—still the sweet guy I remembered from youth choir. Rest in peace dear one. Say hi to your folks for me.

You were very supportive to my team during the Gulfstream interior project our respective organizations collaborated on for the last couple of years. My sincerest condolences to your family during these very emotional and trying times.
