I am sorry for your loss. He was very nice . We did talk laugh and laugh . It will always be in my mind that he was so nice even in his trouble. He laughed joked and was concerned for me. I just wanted you to know that. Praying the family finds peace and one day the mystery will be reviled. It is such a hard thing to never have an answer . I know this as we had a loss this year and we will not know till the end of time either... We will continue to pray for you. It's a hard thing having to accept God's will when the purpose isn't understood.. Praying the wonderful memorie's ease some of the pain.

My heart is just shattered for the family. Robert was always good to me and mine. His sense of humor and quick come backs will surely be missed.
