  1. Earl and family, Sorry to hear of Mr. Robert’s passing but take comfort that when he took his last breath he was with the Lord and free of any pain. He’s not lost, we know he is with the Lord! My prayers will go up for you now and in the days ahead. Take comfort that through Jesus Christ you can be united with him again for ever and ever! What a day that will be!!

  2. My sincerest prayers & condolences to the Roberts family. He was loved by many & will be missed by many, but we know we’ll get to see him again in Heaven!

  3. Ann & family, I sympathy goes out to you as well as my love. I haven’t seen you guys in years, but when I was around Dick, he always had me laughing. He may be gone in body, but he will never be forgotten. I was good friends with Faye, & still am with her boys, but after I divorced out of the family I just stayed away; even though Faye wouldn’t hear of if. I really miss her too as I will miss Dick knowing he has left this earth, however glad to know he will no longer stuff from pain; but glad he is with Faye rejoicing and watching over the rest of his family. My prayers are with you all & just know God will see you through this rough time, you too will be rejoicing with them again one day. Keep Jesus in your heart and know I think of you quiet often, with love Kim Jenkins Pegg Rogers
