I have missed seeing Robert out about town. When I would see him he lit up with that wonderful smile and say, “Hello”, How are you? He was always happy. I know you are going to miss him. Just think of the good days and happy times you had with him. May God keep you in his loving care.
I love you all, Ruth S. Thomas
