Dear Barbara: I am so sorry for your loss - he was a real soul mate and such a great person - and to have known you both through the Congeniality Sunday School Class at Brandon First UMC was such an honor and privilege. Love to you and yours.

I want to share what a wonderful man Robert was. He was my father-in-law and I saw how hard he worked and how he loved his family. I will miss him very much I just wish we lived closer to eachother so we could have spent more time together I know his church was important to him and that he had a strong faith. I have seen him lean on it in difficult times. He was a man to never complain and he gave great advice if you were willing to follow it. He is with his son and grandson now and smiling all the time I am sure of it. I looked to him as a father not just a father -in-law I will truely miss him and I send my love to his wife Barbara and his daughter Sharon

Love you
