I love the picture of my brother in Ireland at the Cliffs of Mohr. We had such a happy holiday while we were there. Robby is wearing John Tobin's jacket because we got so cold while we were looking at this majestic sight. Always happy memories.
I love you Robby and will always remember you in my prayers. Say "Hello" to Momma and all from me.
