  • Uncle Robert was very special to me. He was much quieter than my Dad, Nelson but when dad and I would visit him and Aunt Rose he would sit and tell me stories about them growing up and him and dad would laugh at the trouble they got into. He will be missed. Our love we send to all of you.

  • R.I.P. Uncle Bob! You and Aunt Rose were always the sweetest, most kind people in the world! God Bless.
