To the Lyons family,
I'm so very sorry to hear about his passing. From just the two days I had the privilege of being his nurse, I came to enjoy his company (and his children's). Here's hoping there's an endless supply of coffee in Heaven.

Derek and Patty,
I don't think our condolence got through as written. We are so sorry to hear of Robert's passing. He was a sweet man. We always enjoyed his stories about family and the fun he had with his red truck. Our thoughts and prayers are with you, Patty, Brett and Neil.
