  1. Tawanna,
    Your dad was the sweetest man & I loved him so. I’ve heard Dad talk about what a truck driver he was, so many times. And when I think about him, I see his smiling face. Robert was so sweet & kind to everyone, but most of all I loved him so much because of his love for Aunt Janet. Robert was always so kind, caring & gentle towards Aunt Janet. It made you realize what love was. And later on I got to see you & Robert together. Yall reminded me of me & my Dad so much; two-of-a-kind. It takes a Daddy’s Girl to know one & I know what a love the two of you had for each other. No one can ever take that away from you. You will always have those memories & that love in your heart. Robert will be greatly missed. I hope you know Tawanna, if you need anything all you have to do is call. We love you.
