My dearest Uncle Robert,
I am going to miss you so much. You taught me so many things in life, especially about things that really matter, such as love, gratitude, appreciation, enjoying the simple things, not taking things for granted, and so much more.
Your life had a profound impact on so many; my life is but one of those many. I am so grateful to be your niece.
I said to you many times, "You're my favorite uncle, ever." The smile you would give me connected to that comment will be with me always. The hugs you shared with me, your laughter, your songs, your unique way of looking at things, and most of all, your love, will also be with me always. I hope you know you will always have my love as well... always have had, always will.
I so hate to see you go from this life, but knowing you are with Uncle Eugene, Grandma, Grandpa, Mom, and all the others, is some comfort. Knowing you will never be far from me is a comfort as well.
I know you will come to me when I need you. I will listen for you and look for you in the multitude of things that will always remind me me of you.
I love and treasure you, Robert; I will always carry you deep inside my heart.
With all my love,
