He belongs to the ages now
I'm sad to learn he has passed. My condolences to everyone.
So sorry for your loss. I love you like family.
From what I read and understand Robert went to be with the Lord on4-6-2022 and from reading his obituary my sister Phyllis Kay(Thompson) Cowan was met at the portals of heaven the next day. I don’t remember a lot about Robert but knew his younger siblings. Our prayers are with you and your family. One day very soon we'll be there with all our other loved ones and friends ❤. May God's blessings go with you all.
You were my brother my mentor my father figure and my friend. I’ll miss you more than words can express. I loved you for 69 plus years. I’ll see you again in our heavenly home, we will sing God’s praises together. Until then I’ll cherish the memories you left us and always remember the Christian example you left on my life and all who knew you. May God comfort us all in the days ahead as we wait for our homecoming.
May God's comfort embrace each of you.
