Uncle Robert

Tuesday, June 22, 2010

Today, had my brother-in-law lived, he would turn 30.  It's been almost 23 years since his death, and every day, there is a void that cant be filled.  In some ways, I cant help but wonder if Bobby, in his appearance, has brought a small measure of peace... That he is the sweet boy that Robert may have had...  He looks so much like him (and like Peter, too).

It brings us comfort that Robert is fathering his nephews and niece in heaven...  That one day, we will see them all again.

Happy Birthday, Uncle Robert.
Love,
Bobby and Maya

Happy Birthday, sweet brother.  You are always in our hearts, and your big brother carries a part of you forever with him, every day.  Always.

I'm so sorry for your loss, but I'm glad you find comfort in him taking care of your babies from heaven. . . which I have no doubt he is. :)
