Aunt Carolyn,

Uncle Robert was a kind hearted, generous man who will leave a big empty space in our lives. He always had a ready smile and a funny story to tell. Our visits were always special. We could share any thought, enjoy your company, be parted and separated, come back together again and pick up right where we left off. Your marriage is an inspiration and a model for many of us: always being a friend to each other, finding humor in every day events, and demonstrating a strong framework of faith.

Love you bunches,

Donna and Richard

Fond memories of Uncle Robert sweetest and most loving, great sense of humor. I remember when he was dating Aunt Carolyn, he was so in love and it showed throughout the years. I’m sure he is at peace in God’s care, and our love and sympathy to all the family and friends.
Rest in peace.

Aunt Carolyn,

We send sincere and deeply felt condolences, as our Uncle Robert will forever remain near and dear to us in our memories and in our hearts. He will be sorely missed but never forgotten. I know he is in heaven (with the Peebles clan) with a big smile on his face and with a full heart. We are all better for knowing Uncle Robert.
