  1. I was sorry to read of Robert’s death. He worked at the plant, as did I. He always impressed me as such a nice person. Praying you’ll receive God’s peace as you and your family grieve for Robert. I, too, lost my husband in in July, 2007, so I do know what you are going through at this time. Never forget that you will see him again one day for an eternity, so just keep all your sweet memories near your heart & it’ll help you through the tough times ahead.

    Lifting up your family in prayer & asking for God’s comfort for all of you.
