We deeply mourn Robert’s passing but celebrate the honour and privilege of having been his friend for many years. Robert lived not by words but by enduring example.

Mavis & Family, please accept our condolences from Loretta and I. We will forever be grateful for Robert’s kind words and the encouragement he showed us.

I was blessed to have you in my life, and when we are called to see our Father I know you will be there. I did not cry when I heard you left, just a tug was all I needed to know that I will miss you. Am glad that you have found some peace. I will forever remember and love you.
