Our childhood was wonderful because we had each to play and laugh with.I cherish those memories and will never let them go. Cousin Margaret. Give my mom hugs and kisses. I know you are with our Moms and Grandma.

    I always admired Robert for the love and care he gave to him grand kids that needed extra care. He was always the same kind person when you saw him. He loved taking care of others. He will be missed no doubt. Prayers for the family in the days to come.

    Cousin Robert was a very kind man. He came to visit me at Brenda’s house when I cam to visit, and he was so nice and interested in me as a person, not just a skeleton in the closet. Godspeed Cousin Robert. May you rest in peace and rise in glory.
