I am sorry for your loss. God’s promise of a resurrection gives us hope. He keeps in his limitless memory a detailed record of each person he will resurrect by means of his almighty power (Job 37:23). Soon he will restore “all those in the memorial tombs” to life. (John 5:28,29). We will be able to see our loved ones again . May God and his promise give you strength to face this difficult time, my deepest condolences. - Sincerely, Hesli De Leon (JW. org)

Laura Lee and family, just know we are saddened to hear about Robert.
He was a great classmate and friend, always loved to visit with him.
Robert was never shy about sharing his faith in the Lord, which is refreshing in these times.
Will miss him at all the Lockwood Reunions.
Just take joy in knowing that he is "rejoicing" with Jesus now.

Robert was such a kind man. I only personally talked to him about three times but he always knew me wherever I was and would stop me. He always had nothing but kind things to say and I never heard him speak a bad word. So any things he still wanted to do as he told me "when my health gets a little better" but God decided to call him home. My sympathy to his wife, children and family at this time of their loss.
