  1. 7yrs ago you came into my life. This sweet innocent boy whom someone hurt. As your nurse I cared for you and as your nurse I was your voice because you could not speak. We shared so many amazing days.. dancing together at prom, watching movies, going to the library, going to your grandmother’s church and watching you graduate. You made me so better as a nurse. You were such a warrior through your health struggles and always kept fighting. Your family decided to give your life to others as an organ donor and to them I commend your strength and faith. You are truly a blessing in my life and now my beautiful guardian angel. I love you so much and will tell your story.. My brave little Robbie

It might sound weird to say, but I am thankful to God that He yet let Robbie’s life touch so many hearts and effortlessly fill so many with joy, even though his angelic being was trapped in a body of suffering. Now Robbie has been released from his earthly journey to be adorned with his wings and forever the joyous occasions in heaven.
    Much love and Comfort to Althea, Robbie the 3rd, and the entire Lyles family.

    Teardrops are falling. As we embrace this sad day. A handsome young man has just passed away.
    So perfect his spirit, so perfect his love, So perfect a gift from a Father above. A child, the family is grieving this day, In our hearts God has told us why you couldn’t stay. A spirit so special, so perfect, and pure, should not have the trials of this life to endure. Then back to our Heavenly Father you went, fulfilling the mission for which you were sent.
    Although our grief is heavy this day,
    we know you are happy, and not far away. Loved ones have gathered close to your side. Life is Eternal…
    Know that we love you with all of our heart. We’ll see you our dear one when this life we part. Save us a place where we’ll be close to you,
    and in joy we’ll embrace, as our love we renew.
