IOU...Because. Now you know all that "because" means! God gave us memories to bridge the gap between here and there. I will walk the bridge frequently until one day I too will be there.

Happy Birthday baby! The site stole my tribute! No matter, you know what I said. I owe you because everything I do I do it for you. Dancing in the living room, watching the 49ers, Fettuccini Alfredo, Hurricane Andrew, counting our change, walking up the aisle, Tara and the big bears, NASA, Universal, Flamingo Gardens...all because

Bob I spoke to Dennis and John got a message from Paul and found myself thinking how much it hurts that I could not call you. Merry Christmas and Happy New year in Heaven Bob you are always missed and remembered.

My love is forever. It depends not on presence but on memories. I remember all the many Christmas celebrations we shared. I miss you today and will miss you every day until we meet again. I will walk hand and hand with you from here to there because I will wait until you come to walk me home. You are The One and I love you Because.

Bobby you must be so proud of our little bean! She has become an amazing mother and woman. Yes, there were trials but she has come through with flying colors. She is and always will be the greatest gift you gave me. You must have met Bella! Amazing little girl!!! I love you and miss you until forever.

Happy Birthday baby! Missing you still. Loving you still. Sometimes people are lucky and they find The One for them. Sometimes people are blessed and both people meet and find they are The One for each other. Such as it was for us. I will love you forever and look for you one day when my time here is done. I love you, "because".

Remembering you this day and every day that I live without you. I miss your smile, laying my head on your shoulder, dancing in the living room to our song. Our first date, home, the day we married, the day you told me I was pregnant, the day Tara was born, the many seconds, minutes, hours, days, weeks, months and years of the life we made together. I loved you then and I love you now. You are my forever love. Until we meet again I will miss you and all "because".

Today marks six years that you've been gone, but there isn't one day that I don't think about you. I will always love you and carry you with me anywhere I go. Thank you for teaching me, loving & caring for me. You were a great man & an amazing Daddy. I'll never forget you. You will always be in my heart. I love you Daddy. Butterfly Kisses

Bobby, though gone from our daily lives, never forgotten and always missed. These five years have been hell without you. My life will never be the same. For me, you are The One. Living without you is like living as half a heart. I will always love and miss you, until we meet again .

Love knows no time or distance. Love stands through all storms, through life and through death, love remains when all else is gone. I loved you then, I love you now and will love you into the future until the day we meet again. I love you Because.

I pray You'll be our eyes And watch us where we go And help us to be wise In times when we don't know Let this be our prayer As we go our way Lead us to a place Guide us with Your grace To a place where we'll be safe I pray we'll find Your light And hold it in our hearts When stars go out each night Remind us where You are Let this be our prayer When shadows fill our day Oh Lord, lead us to a place, oh my Guide us with Your grace Give us faith so we'll be safe A world where pain and sorrow will be ended And every heart that's broken will be mended And we'll remember we are all God's children Reaching out to touch you, reaching to the sky We ask that life be kind And watch us from above We hope each soul will find Another soul to love Let this be our prayer Just like every child Needs to find a place Guide us with Your grace Give us faith so we'll be safe Needs to find a place Guide us with Your grace Give us faith so we'll be safe Songwriters SAGER, CAROLE BAYER / FOSTER, DAVID

Thinking of you often. As the holidays approach I will remember how we were always excited to celebrate. I remember Our First Christmas together. I just put out the ornament that we have from that Christmas. I miss you the same every day. It never changes. I love you, Bobby. You are part of my soul. You are never far from me. One day I will once again feel your hand holding mine, look up at you and lay my head on your shoulder. Until then I will forever remember and miss you.
Posted by Sharon Obrien on 18th May 2014
You must be dancing and singing with joy to see that your life long wish is coming true....your children, lost to you for so long, are finding one another. I hate to say I told you so....but I did. I know you can't be physically here to experience it but I know that spiritually you know it's been happening. You just have to be patient. All things come about in their appropriate time. Still missing you and ALWAYS LOVING YOU.
Posted by Sharon Obrien on 16th May 2014
I try NOT to remember dates like your birthday, the date that you passed away, etc. Tara always reminds me, though. Like you, she is good with numbers and can't forget dates even if she wants to. Everyday without you hurts. I miss you more each day. You don't get over loss. You just get through it. You never forget the love of your life. You can never be replaced in my heart. I gave you my heart on our first date. I KNEW you were different, special and already belonged to me. Just as I already belonged to you. Forever and Ever Amen

It's up and then I remember again that you are gone. But I promise, not forgotten. I miss you Bobby.so hard to beiieve that three years have passed already. .I still sometimes look to call you when something comes
Posted by James OBrien on 29th March 2014
I have been waiting all day to leave you a message thinking of the right words to say I miss you very much and I hope that Mom and Dad are doing okay as well but I guess it's not that hard to say I miss you to someone who's gone so I say what's up to you cause you can't be gone if you remain in my heart
Posted by John O'Brien on 29th March 2014
I hope you're having a good time with Mom & Dad. We miss you Rob. Ill always remember you. It's funny but the longer you're gone the more I miss you.Life does that to you sometimes. See you when I see you!
Posted by Sharon Obrien on 28th January 2014
Just a note to say that I think about you all the time. My heart is still broken in a million little pieces. I don't cry because I am afraid that if I start I won't ever stop. I miss you my husband, best friend and father of our beautiful princess. We may have had our problems but loving one another was not one of them. Forever...Because.

I love you Bobby,till we meet again Love Paulie :}
Posted by Paul O'Brien on 29th March 2013
I agree on the fact that we will get that second chance. When we do i know it will be something to remember forever! I look forward to seeing you again Bobby. I look forward to all of us sitting down together again as Family enjoying a cold beer and a good laugh! I want to thank you for being there for me brothers like you are hard to find!
Posted by Paul O'Brien on 29th March 2013
We may have had our problems with each other but the family bond was always there no matter what, family is family! We all have our differences with each other its part of our family history to not talk to each other.I know i regret a lot of things i've done in my life one that hurts me to the core is me not talking to you more than i did.
Posted by Paul O'Brien on 29th March 2013
Hey Bobby, its been 2 years but to me it still feels like you left us yesterday! Everyday i think about you& how much i miss you,how i wish we could spend a day together and talk about the faults we had with each other and fix them! One thing there was no fault with was our Love for each other as Brothers. that was a bond that was unbreakable
Posted by John O'Brien on 29th March 2013
This might be cruel by some standards but I feel that I miss you more than anyone else. Man what I wouldn't give for an hour or two to talk with you now. Life changes and families change but our love for each other never fades.
Posted by John O'Brien on 29th March 2013
I believe we all come back from time to time and relive parts of our lives that we must get right. Our souls travel a long way to see that we get things right. If this is true I hope we both get the chance to do it again and maybe be better at it. God bless you Bobby.
Posted by John O'Brien on 29th March 2013
It's early in the day Rob, only 1:30 AM but I have to say I still miss you. I only wish that we were as close in our older years as we were in our younger years. As much as we fought, we looked out for each other.. I'm sorry if I didn't do as much as I could for you when you needed more than you asked for.I look forward to our next meeting together. Love u Bob.
Posted by Sharon Obrien on 3rd February 2013
Bobby today our beautiful little baby girl is turning 18 years old! Wish you were here to celebrate with us. I know you are as proud of her as I am. She is amazing and perfect in so many ways...AND..she is a 49er's fan. We will be routing for the 49er's today in the Super Bowl. I know you and Mom are routing for them too. Miss you baby--now and always

I am only half of me without you.,,,I miss your smile, your laugh and most of all your hugs. Time may make the heart grow fonder but it makes the life lonelier. Love Forever Because.....

Every time I see or talk to your children it reminds of a story about you or of something you did, I will always be there for them and I will always share those stories:)
