Tragedy struck our family the day Robert passed. We lost our father, brother, granddad, our everything. We don’t find it to be fair. We know God only takes the best but dad was simply too soon. He gave is time, his wisdom and even an opinion if it was what you needed. Dad was truly someone you could count on and will be truly missed on so many levels.
Don’t take any time for granted my friends. Life is short.
