I have lost a great friend of over 70 years. We originally met in Boy Scouts and were friends ever since. Robie was just plain fun to be around, a great person and liked by all. I will miss him. My best to all his family.

My thoughts and prayers are with you Skye and Robin. I remember your dad fondly. He was so handsome, kind and always smiling. Surround yourselves now with lots of photos and memories and your hearts will feel better.
Alma, Bert, and Tina, you are all in my prayers as well. Focus on all the fun things you share together. I lost my mother suddenly last summer and seeing her picture In different places and thinking of our happy past is the only way I have gotten through each day.
Best wishes to you all
