We were sadden to receive notice that "Balee" had passed. He will always be "Balee" to us as neighbors growing up that is the only name I knew until middle school I found out his name was Robert. I know he is in a better place looking down with his hands on his hips saying for us to be happy because as a youngster he always had his hands on his hip saying something. To his family our deepest sympathy but with much thank you for being a part of our childhood memories. Amelia "Mellie" Sanchez Munoz daughter of Jesse n Dora Sanchez

Our deepest sympathy to the Jass family. Robert left us too soon and he will be truly missed but He left us great memories. Robert always had a smile on his face and he spoke very highly of the love he had for his family. Ashley & Harvette know that we are always a phone call away and we will continue to pray for you during this difficult time. I pray that the Lord wrap His arms around you and give you that strength to stay strong. He will be missed. Love your cousins (David, Danielle, Brandon, Liz Torres)

We know that pain, and nothing will take It away. Just know that the family would not know each other if it had not been for Robert. The Lord gave us such a special gift with Robert. He was a symbol of what families should be to each other. Our prayers are with your family. God Bless. Our deepest sympathy from the Ozuna Family from Wichita Falls
