Anne Marie, the last I saw of you and your little brood, your oldest held the door for me coming into church before going on to his class, and I can hear you saying "Amen" when the pastor makes a good point. My heart is so broken for you all. You are daily in our prayers. May God hold you and the children through these difficult days. May He provide for your every need and may His grace abound to you through every step you take.

I will miss Rob's quiet strength and knowledge in the aisles of his department. He was patient and supportive of his co-workers. I always enjoyed his enthusiastic responses to sports figures being discussed in the employee breakroom. He had a great laugh. He was respected throughout the store for his hard work and consistency. His absence will be noted by everyone - co-workers and customers alike.

Anne - I am so sorry for the loss of Robert; not only for you but the for the children. We know that God has a plan & at times we don't understand it. I know that He will be your guide throughout this process and He will direct you in your ways. I pray especially for your children; that God will also show them his presence. Your Faith is strong and I know without a doubt that He has you and the children in His arms right now. I pray you feel the peace & comfort that He is giving to you and the strength that will guide you.
