Condolence Messages

  1. To the family of Robert, you have my deepest sympathy in the loss of your loved one. Death is one of the most difficult situations we must face. At Revelation 21:4, God promises “And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.” Titus 1:2 says “based on a hope of the everlasting life that God, who cannot lie, promised long ago.”

    To my Cousins, Renee’, Ericka, Robin, Todd and the rest of my family: Let me start off by saying “I Love You!!” I remember when Robert was still in the Air Force and he would come down to Buffalo, Texas and stay a few days while he was on leave. He taught me how to play dominos. This is one memory I will always cherish. On behalf of Diana, Tiffany, Trendon and myself, God bless you and keep you in in your time of sorrow.

    We was so sorry to hear about Uncle Bob passing. He was a great man and will always be one of the greatest men that was in my life and showed me unconditional love as a father would and I’m happy I was able to make him proud in the last year and I’m sorry I didn’t make it in time to see you. I loved hearing him tell me stories about when I was little and how I just use to cling to him and jump on him…he made me laugh so much.
    I love you Uncle Bob! I know you were welcomed with warm arms from all our loved ones. Give them all a kiss for me. I will remember you always <3
