You are the sweetest man I have ever known. I learned SO much by the example you set before me: You gave without thought of yourself, you loved without holding back, your forgave as if you had never been wronged, you worked hard as if that day were the only day anything could be accomplished.
I will always treasure special memories I had the opportunity to share with you: long rides in the car where you would share stories of your school years and of your service to our country, watching ball games together- especially The Cubbies and The Rays, The Bucs, and even The Gators, and even more recent memories, sharing a quiet conversation over chicken nuggets and a diet Pepsi. I was SO lucky to be your girl, and it was the pleasure of my life!
I am so happy that you are together with Grandma and Mom again- and so many others who have gone before. My heart aches terribly for myself, yet rejoices greatly for you!
I love you so much- and I will always remember your very last words to me the afternoon before you passed "Oh Honey, I love you too". ❤ You are missed every moment!!

Really tall and always with a gentle smile, that is how I remember Uncle Robert. The last time I saw him he and Aunt Mary showed up at the home of my Mother, Shirley Fitser Rozelle his sister. They had come over to help us pack a truck to move my Mother to my home in New Jersey. Without his help we would have been packing for days.
I send my deepest condolences to Cheri and her family and the family of her late sister Lynn.
My thoughts and prayers are with you.

So sorry for your loss.
Carol and I last visited Uncle Robert and Aunt Mary maybe two years ago when they lived in Auburndale. We enjoyed a nice visit and took photographs back north for my mom, Ruth (Fitser) Nygren. Mom is now the last surviving sibling.
So for my mom and the rest of the Nygren family, our sincere condolences.
