    I can’t begin to explain the impact that Robert made on my life. He was like a father too me while at work he taught me everything he knew. He’s been there too talk to me when no one else was. He’s taught me strength and heart and to never give up and keep on pushing forward. I’ll never forget all the amazing memories we have made and ill never be able to thank him enough for what he’s done for me in my life. He was an a amazing person and had a one of a kind personality. There won’t be a day that goes by that I won’t be thinking about him and all the advice he’s giving me throughout the last three years. I’ll be forever thankful that he took time and taught me as well as he made sure that I was okay and always asked if I was doing alright. Rest in paradise my friend. You’ll be forever missed
