    Robert was one of the most motivated, happy, and energetic people I have had the pleasure to meet. His zest for life and helping others defined his character and moral code. I am truly saddened by his passing but remember how big of an impact he had on those he came into contact with. That impact will live on.

    My thoughts and prayers are with you all. This poem helped me when I lost my father far too soon... When I come to the end of the road And the sun has set for me I want no rites in a gloom-filled room Why cry for a soul set free? Miss me a little-but not too long And not with your head bowed low Remember the love that we once shared Miss me-but let me go For this is a journey that we all must take And each must go alone. It's all part of the Master's plan A step on the road to home When you are lonely and sick of heart Go to the friends we know And bury your sorrows in doing good deeds Miss me but let me go.
