Jill, we are all so sorry to lose an incredible Sherriff in our area. Times were different back when he walked the streets of Lyons, keeping an eye on things. The old goat and I were telling some of the nurses at the VA on Tuesday about Robert calling him that and keeping him in line. I'm so sorry I'm out of state attending an aesthetic conference and would not be able to get home in time. You will be in my thoughts and prayers. Robert will be taken care of in heaven by his family that has gone on before him and I know they will be waiting with open arms. I know you will be lost without him.

To the family,

I am sorry for your loss. May the God of peace heal your hearts and may you find comfort in the words of Revelation 21:4.
