I am so sorry for your loss. Uncle Robert was a sweet man. He loved hunting, golfing and spending time with his family. He was a grand God Father to my daughter. He and Aunt Teresa were at all her events as she was growing up in life. He will truly be missed. I know he is in a better place now and we will hold his memory in our hearts. Looking forward to seeing him again soon. Praying for all the family and that God would lift you up during this time.

Robert was a fine man. He and his wife Teresa were part of our extended family and we loved them. They usually came to our family home on Christmas Eve and to summer cookouts, Robert with Banana pudding in hand and Teresa with her camera. I will always remember them fondly. Prayers for the family.
