  15. To my brother Robbie
    When reflecting on family as an adult, I often think that having a brother while growing up is what I missed the most. I was never blessed with a brother as a child but having you as my brother for over 40 of my almost 64 years on this earth has been a blessing for which I will forever be thankful.
    Rest in Peace my brother.
    All my love forever-until we meet again…Billy

  17. candleThe heart of our family is broken and the world is much dimmer now. I will miss you every day for the rest of my life my sweet uncle. You were and always will be my favorite.

  18. My brother Robert was loving, kind, clever, and funny. In many ways, he was the best of us.
    A child born on Sunday, the Sabbath day, is said to be loving, giving, good and happy, and are extra special, gifted with an extra bit of God’s grace. Robert was all those things. He was born on Dec. 23, 1962, on Sunday and passed away on Aug. 8th, on Sunday, the Sabbath day, an extra special man, gifted with that extra bit of God’s grace, called home. While we are devastated, Heaven is certainly a more joyful and funny place because he is there. And I know in my heart, the first words he said in heaven were, “Mom, dad Sonny boy is here.”
