Hello Son.
It's been longer than I like, I think about you evrty day but I lose the time to write. I miss you and wonder every day how I will pass my grand dads heirlooms. I love you. Someone stole the ghost bike byt if the tree survives; you'll have a marker long after we are gone.
Love you... See you soon

Oh Robert,
It has been a long time since I have written you. Holloween, your Birthday, now Thanksgiving. I am getting stronger about remembering you. I rarely break down in front of people. I speak about how proud I am of you. The lives you saved, the sight you restored, the other 10 people who's lives you made better.
Today has been a little different, i have missed you more today than I can say. I am sorry you had to help others, i wish I could have been their donor. I miss you...

It's been a year and it feels like an eternity.
We Love You, not a day goes by you leave my heart. Only those that have lost a child as good as you could understand...Grieving doesn't have a time limit. You will be Loved forever and missed until God reunites us.
I Love You

Good Morning Robert,
One year ago Saturday i recieved a call that turned my world upside down. I haven't slept well thinking about you and the injuries you were asked to overcome after you were hit by the car.
I prayed for a miracle to happen and you answered in true Robert form. I know your kind heart replied by becoming the Miracle others had to have to stay healthy and live better lives.
Every day I miss you.
Christmas movie, fathers day movie, projects around the...

Hello Son,
I have been thinking about you often
Rebecca and I went to Victoria BC last weekend.
Had lots of fun. We talked a bit.
I know she misses you as do all of us.
I have more pride in you than you'll ever know.
I Love You.

Hey son,
So yesterday there was a picnic at OHSU it was a picnic for donors and recipients ran into several familiar faces all of them remembered you dearly through the donor process you have touched more lives than you'll ever know and it you will be the reason so many more lives have an opportunity to become alive and well.
I love you so very much I miss you even more I wish that day had never happened I think of you all the time

Been thinking about you more than ever. I know you hate the heat and it is warming up. I don't know if I told you. The guy that killed you is in jail. 27,000 dollar bail and a GPS. He was arrested while he was loading his motor home. I told the judge about his taking a reverse mortgage of 400,000.00 in january. So, the judge treated him like a flight risk.
Waiting for the trial.
Love You
