    My heart goes out to you Ginny and the rest of the family for the loss of Robert. He is no longer in pain or suffering. Robert will be sadly missed by many. Robert was a unique individual! I loved his nature, his wit…. just for being the person he was. We shared so many great times together along with Ginny and the boys. WOW! the memories I have of this man and his fun loving nature. These memories were the best times of my life!!! He was a fun loving person who despite his handicap enjoyed life and being with family and friends. I know time and individual life circumstances have separated us, but he truly touched a special place in my heart! The memories of years past will always be close in my heart along with the special bond we all shared! God has chosen to call his son home now so there will be no suffering or sorrow…..only wholeness of life anew. May your memories give you strength and comfort in the days to come. May God bless you and give you peace in the loss of this special man! Love and Prayers to all!
