Ashley, Pan and family, we were broken hearted to hear about Robby. All of us in Veazey loved him. There will never be anyone as good, kindhearted and caring as Robby. You have our deepest sympathy, we will all have our wonderful memories of this very special person.

When someone we love passes away,
We ache, but we go on;
Our dear departed would want us to heal,
After they are gone.

Grief is a normal way to mend
The anguish and pain in our hearts;
We need time to remember and time to mourn,
Before the recovery starts.

Let's draw together to recuperate,
As we go through this period of sorrow;
Let's help each other, with tender care
To find a brighter tomorrow.

Sending prayers and thoughts of comfort to you all
