Hew buddy how are you? I sure miss you. We had some good times and memories didn't we? Two times that we shared together stand out to me. The first one was our very late nite/morning out hunting frogs. I think we ended up with around 25. We fried them up that next day at our house. Dad was a big fan but if you remember he complained and said they were "too chewy" lol..........What have you and dad been up to ? Have you got him to clean up his language any? I hope he hasn't rubbed off on you !!!!! He wasn't like a sailor or anything but would slip one in on occasion. Ha Ha. The second big memory I can think of at the moment was the spring turkey hunt in Metamora. It was on a Saturday morning on April 29th of 2012. We headed up that huge hill into the forest. When we got to the top of that huge hill we walked a few minutes in the dark and found a good spot. We sat down and nestled our butts between these two big trees. It hid us a bit. We chose our shooting sections. I took the right half and you the left as I estimated your side would be most favorable. Well as turkey hunting goes, they do many times the opposite of what you expect. So at 7:10 am there was a thunderous roar from my 12 gauge pump and soon we were high-fiving and hugging each other with joy as the big bird that was still flopping around on the ground in front of us. (I have a huge grin here for several minutes now ha ha). We had ran to our prey to assure it was definitely down and that is when we started our celebration!! We did it, we bagged our first spring gobbler together!!! Things got us so pumped right there that we walked away with our quarry and I forgot I had ejected all the remaining shells from the gun on the ground. I had forgotten this until after our long walk back to the camper. Well we had to conquer that darn tall hill again to gather up the shells which took quite a while to find. (another ha ha). Sometime during that trip I had asked you to make the tag for legal transporting of the turkey. (If you have a lifetime license you create your own tag)........ I am the type of person that holds some things dear to my heart and so I had kept the tag you had made for me. Your writing is on the top and mine is on the bottom. If my wife will help me I will get it posted here as well. It may be separate from this writing but I will display it. I love to look at your hand writing as it brings you back in a sense. But honestly you really aren't gone you are just in a different place............ That next spring of 2013 we went back to Metamora but we were not successful in our quest of another turkey but of course we had lots of fun. We still fished the creek and fried up a mess of fish..............I can't recall 2014 and honestly I may be getting '13 and '14 mixed up. But I do know this, in the spring of 2015 I headed to Metamora alone. It was tough but there was a reason I had to go alone. You moved on to a higher place and decided it was time to go mess around with my dad and give him some company. And lol, show him a correct way to do a few things in an honorary way. (some of you reading this know what I mean) (another lol dad)..........Well I went up that hill alone this time. I had laid in bed that morning and talked myself out of going a couple times and finally got up at 4:45. I told myself I was gonna do this for you.........The time prior that you and I went to Metamora and were unsuccessful, we were hunting and decided to take a break sitting on this log. I took your photo and still have it. Again we were clowning around laughing about something. Well this morning I hunted alone and set up for a turkey only 10-15 feet from where we sat on that log. Robbie 30 minutes later I called a turkey to this spot. It gobbled over and over as it came closer and closer to my calling. It crested the little incline and I downed that turkey buddy!!!! I ran to it in tears and thanked god over and over again. You were there with me. I knew that I got out of bed for a reason. And I was gifted for being disciplined enough to return for another hunt and it was for us. That was quite the bitter sweet morning. I had that turkey mounted and nick named it "Big Tom" lol. I knew you would like that. I jalso saved the shotgun shell used to take the bird and have it somewhere. Another one of those little things to hang on to. I had not really been in the right mood to share any thoughts on your site here until now. I'm glad your dad created this for us. I'm glad I wrote to you. I know it makes you smile buddy. Thanks for the good times. We will have more of these together in time. I hope you smiled with this today. I will be back another time to do this again with another good one. See ya partner, Uncle Mark.

I didn't have the pleasure of knowing Robbie but I have walked alongside Rob and Pam since he went home to Jesus and I have to say what amazing people they are. They have been able to grieve in a manner that brings glory and honor to the Lord. Look forward to us all being reunited!

Robbie was a great friend to me since childhood. He always had the biggest dreams and seeing him follow his inspired me to do the same. I miss and love you brother.

I'm so glad that I was able to know Robbie as well as I did. There was no one on this earth that could make me smile like Robbie could, and it was not just me. He could make any one smile without trying. You were like a brother to me and I can't wait to see you again in heaven. I miss you.

I often shared Robbie's love of life as example of how truly a young man should live, and even more so now. Simply how He enjoyed Jesus, friends, outdoors, laughing, eating food, being crazy and so much more. Miss you much Robbie.

Robbie was literally like a brother to me, being around him was like being around family, and I never thought any more about it other than the truth that he truly is and was family! Love you bro.

Luke 20 34 Jesus answered and said to them, "The sons of this age marry and are given in marriage. 35 But those who are counted worthy to attain that age, and the resurrection from the dead, neither marry nor are given in marriage; 36 nor can they die anymore, for they are equal to the angels and are sons of God, being sons of the resurrection. 37 But even Moses showed in the burning bush passage that the dead are raised, when he called the Lord 'the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob.' 38 For He is not the God of the dead but of the living, for all live to Him." (NKJV) You are in my thoughts and prayers. Happy Birthday Robbie--son of God, son of the resurrection!

I love you Robbie. You faced cancer with such courage, you never once complained in spite of the pain and hardship this aweful sickness brought upon you. Who you were/are shined through in the roughest time of your life and that changed my life!! I will never be the same because I was allowed by God to be your mother, thank you for that son. You are so special, my heart so misses you everyday. Forever made a better person because you lived. Can't wait to see you again in heaven. Your mom
