Robert, I have a heart overflowing with sadness because one of the finest men to ever walk the face of this earth has left us ... that person is YOU!!! But before you left us, you contributed to making ALL of us who knew you, better people. You are a model husband, father, son and friend. I have had the privilege of knowing you for the past thirty-nine years and watched you grow into the man you became. Along with your Mom and Dad, I marveled at your development, your jest for life, your love for Karen, your beautiful children, for your whole family, and the friends you have been surrounded by. Very sadly, I say "so long, for now", but I will never say "goodbye", as I fully intend to see you on the "other side!" All my love, Robert. May GOD place HIS hand upon you and watch over you for eternity. Your pseudo Uncle, Dave
