Uncle Robert ( as I was introduced to by Keenan) , we always had such great times with you when you came over to our house.♡ I remember drawing a tree ( along with other family members of mine) and you would tell us what it meant by how we drew it. We were all so impressed! 🙂 We loved your smile, your laughter,  your jokes, and YOU! ♡ I will think of you everytime I eat seafood salad, (as you loved it), because Keenan and I got it for you (upon your request ) and I fed it to you. ♡ You will be so missed by so many lives you touched!!!!! I know you’re in a better place now. Till we meet again… I love you Uncle Robert… P.S. Much thanks to Keenan that I had the pleasure of meeting such a wonderful man! 🙂
