From your big brother, Deatrick, and dad
My big brother, Robert, you are loved and missed by me. Your
laughter and smile were a gift of comfort. Your presence brought
me strength. You walk before us to clear a heavenly path, building
our family home. I will be looking forward to seeing you again.
Rest in paradise until we meet again. (JR)
Son you recently gave me the greatest gift a mother can receive
in 40 yrs. When you told the nurse “I am a momma’s boy”! You
are my hero – the wind beneath my wings, as I walk through life
with your love in my heart. Like we said, together we will be
holding hands wherever we are. We love you Robert.
Mom, Dad and Brothers
