Blessings to your family for the precious gift they have graciously given to our nation. I never knew you, but I thank you from the bottom of my heart for your sacrifice. Dios te bendiga por lo que has hecho por nuestra patria.

Robert "Junior" - You've blessed our lives with your captivating smile and entertaining imagination. Embarassed because I always bragged about you, you were soft-spoken and always quietly reaching out to help others. Now you've given the ultimate gift. Your body died, but your spirit and our love for you will live on forever. I miss you so much.

Junior, I remember you most at family BBQ's and brunches at Denny's. Swimming and hot summer days. Family reunions and Christmas, Thanksgiving and Easter gatherings. You are in our hearts and thoughts.
