    We are all so sorry for your loss. I know how much in love you two were, you were so proud of him and loved talking about him. Charels was telling us how Robert turned him on to smoked turkey legs at the renaissance festival, and how much fun he had with your family that day. I know Robert will be watching over you and the children
