"3 years. It still feels so raw. I think about you every day. I miss our talks, our texts and emails. I miss your visits. It didn't matter if we went hiking, shopping at Costco, out for beers at BJs, or just relaxing at home and grilling- you were happy just to be with us. Thank you for all of the wonderful memories- it's the memories that keep your love alive and they remind me how blessed I was to have the relationship with you and the time with you that I did. We were all blessed to have you in our lives; you taught us so much. Especially, to love each other, give people the benefit of the doubt, trust God, and be kind. Love you and miss you, Dad."

"I sure miss the good times and laughs we had. Just isn't the same without you."

"It's been 2 years since we last heard your voice, saw your smile, had a chat, shared a laugh...You are missed so much Dad. I think about you every single day and sometimes several times a day. I miss you all the time...I take comfort in knowing you have peace and feeling that you are still with us, quietly watching us move through our days, sharing in our happy times and shining light on us in our difficult times. I think about how you treated others with kindness and I think about how quickly you were taken from us and it reminds me to be kind, smile, treat others with respect and to recognize each day as a gift and to live it enjoying and appreciating the things we might take for granted: sunshine, a friendly face, nature, a good meal, each other. I love you so much Dad. Never goodbye only bye for now."

"Bob and I worked together before I bought my First car from him and ended up renting from him at Primrose Ave for 12 awesome years. He was a good friend and great guy. He introduced me to Scuba diving and we shared a passion for ridiculously expensive Hi-Fi. Bob you will be missed and always remembered. Thank you for your friendship."

"Hello Uncle Bob, I just want to say I miss you and I am glad we talked 2 months ago.  Tim and I will always treasure the wedding photos you took of us since we couldn't do a photographer.  They are the best!  The things I remember most are all the trips we took to Virginia and all of you to us in CT.  You were so fun and always very loving and kind.  Have fun dancing with Jesus!"

"Uncle Robert was the nicest unselfish person I knew. I honestly got told a lot about him and all about how he would generously help a person less fortunate. He will be dearly missed and he is in a far better place with his father and Heavenly Father."

"Dad, I love and miss you so much. James and I just finished watching a video you made of us just being kids, eating cake, and laughing. You had a way of capturing the small everyday life events and showing us how precious they were. I'll always try to treasure moments with family and friends as you always told me to do. Love each other, that was always your departing message. We will Dad."
