Condolence & Memory Journal

I had a special respect for my Uncle Robert. He was respected for his wisdom, his priorities and his well balanced life.

He had fun hobbies; one of which was building and flying radio controlled airplanes. I also enjoyed fly fishing with him in clear-water mountain streams.

I remember a time while driving an Elk approached the car. Animals that large don't run wild in the North East. That was unnerving.

My Uncle Robert will be missed but the treasures he left behind will live on to enrich the lives of those who knew him.

I am very thankful for the time I had with him. Rest now in peace.
