Mrs. Eaton, I worked with Bob at the AAFP. Your husband could light up a room with that smile and laugh!! That's always the first thing I thought of, besides his kindness and quiet capable way of dealing with the craziness that happens at work sometimes. I will remember that about him forever. God bless and keep your family! I know Bob's okay!

Cherry, I was so sorry to hear of Robert's passing. I know my mother thought a lot of both of you. Prayers for you as you continue through life's journey.

Dear Uncle Robert,
Please know that I have special memories of you that make me smile. I reminisce fondly of childhood summers visiting you, Aunt Cherry, and Brian. You will be deeply missed, you are deeply loved, and you will forever be in our hearts. Until we meet again…
Love you,
