I miss you everyday my loving dad. I’m so thankful god gave me a second chance to have a real father like you in my life. I hope you know that your last wishes to officially adopt me was told to me and it goes to show how amazing you are. A piece of paper won’t ever stop you from being my father. You have been my dad since day 1. You and I were a great team and I will cherish all of our happy moments together . I’m so happy I was able to put a smile on your face even when you were stuck in a bed unable to walk for 7 years. You were THE MOST selfless man I’ve ever known. You were in a nursing home stuck in a bed and you still were more concerned of everyone else around you and listen to their problems. I Thank you for all the amazing years you have given me! I will miss our dances together, I will miss you flipping me over with 1 single finger, I will miss you humming while eating, I will miss your picky ways of eating. Most of all I will miss kissing that beautiful bald head of yours and hearing you say the actual words, “I Love you kid” instead of “Likewise” even though I loved that as well. Rest In Peace my amazing dad you were one of a kind. Hey dad I love you… De Da De Da Deeeeeee!!!

Although my relationship with Robby was a short 15 years my love for him will be forever. When I married Jimmy he welcomed me with open arms and my son Ryan. He made us laugh and truly wanted to hear all that was going on in our life. We shared many meals with him and I would joke because like my awesome hubby, Robby was a picky eater. So we would eat pizza or Chinese often when we all got together. When Robby entered Glen Gariff we all thought "He will come home soon" but unfortunately that wasn't in his future. When he moved to St. James Nursing home we were thrilled bc he was close by and we were able to visit frequently. He often talked of his Mom who he loved dearly. In the last weeks of his life Hilda (who he so affectionately called his daughter), Jimmy, Joe, Mike n myself made him as comfortable as possible. Those last memories with him we will cherish forever. He was a Treasure, a Mensch, and our Coach! Now he will be Our Angel.Love you always,Christine (Jones)

Uncle Bob was certainly an angel amongst us! Uncle Bob touch so many lives. My family alone had 7 kids, our cousins plus the local neighborhood kids was an army of kids that Uncle Bob treated like his own. Uncle Bob would pile a group of us (minimum 6-8) in his gold car as we sat on top of each other laughing and having a ball, and Uncle Bob enjoy the heck out of watching us being silly. He would drive us to McDonalds and treat us (McDonalds was a big deal back then). I will never forget Adventure Land - I couldn't wait for the weekend to come in the summer when Uncle Bob would offer to take a bunch of us to Adventure Land and treat us to all the rides and buy us spumoni after at La Gulies, I was in heaven. My most memorable thing that Uncle Bob did for me was introduce me to horseback riding in my early teens. I have stayed with the sport and I am absolutely in awe over riding horses to this day (now 60yrs old and still riding). What Uncle Bob did for me was things that a father does for his own children. I have always called him Uncle Bob but he really was my second Dad. Then when we got older we returned the favors. My brother Nick and I would pick up Uncle Bob (sometimes in a wheelchair) and take him out to fancy restaurants. While my brother and I had some cocktails, it was our turn to watch Uncle Bob enjoying his very rare filet mignon steak. As he ate his steak with every bite he would say hummmmm this is so good. It was a real pleasure to see him having fun just like he use to watch us have fun. Uncle Bob will never be forgotten or ever leave my heart. Love to everyone Stacy
