  1. Shirley, Dan and Christopher we are so sorry for the loss of your beloved son and brother….May God comfort you in this very, very difficult time. You also have our sympathy in the loss of your sister Joann…
    Don’t weep at my grave,
    For I am not there.
    I’ve a date with a butterfly
    To dance in the air.
    I’ll be singing in the sunshine,
    Wild and free,
    Playing tag with the wind
    While I’m waiting for thee.

  3. I was blessed to have Robert as one of my students. Not only was he a special boy, but his “Elvis” imitation was great. He became a fine young man and will never be forgotten. “Memory Eternal”
