Uncle Robert was wonderful, loving, kind, caring, ful of life and sometimes a bit hard headed like most of us are but I loved him very much. He played guitar and sang to me since I was a little girl, he would always find time to chat with me when I needed, spent time and stayed up late with me when I was conditioning for track and cross country during my school years, he came to stay with us during some of our hurricanes and boy that was fun, we laughed a lot during that time,he was going crazy for a cigarette break, but he handled it well and thats hard to do in a non-smoking house, I’m just saying but he did it. He was so very important to me and my family he will forever hold a very special place in my heart, I will love you forever uncle Robert, fly high and be at peace. Love your niece Ellie and family
