    Thanks for permitting me to be part of this moment. Uncle Robbie as I knew him was deeply loved by my family and he was a friend to my father for over 70years! A lifetime together. Studied together,joined the Marines together, my Dads best man, did many things together and will be forever remembered. Their last reunion was for Thanksgiving amidst Covid19 nothing separated them and that desire to be together.
    It has been very hard on my Dad Tony and I know all grieve as well.
    God bless Uncle Robbie and May he rest in Peace in Heaven!
