Robateau, it’s a year... I miss you so so much. There are no words to describe my heartache. I wish you were here with the boys and me. I know you are watching over us. We miss you everyday. We miss your voice, your smile, your laughter, your hugs & kisses. Babe, continue to watch over us. You are now the man of my dreams.

Life does not discriminate against age or time. Love each other & be thankful for the moments you have shared together. No one is promised tomorrow. Family is everything & we realize too late how little time we have on this Earth with our loved one..

♥️ RMR♥️
