We had a great night tonight with your cousin Doug Ambrose, many laughs, Troop F, Troop T and Orangetown PD guys got together, a few beers and a bunch of RWA stories, Paint ball, dead turkey and movies to name a few.

12 yeas today... Miss you so much! Still unreal. You have two nieces and one nephew. They would have loved you. When they see a picture of you, the know you are "Uncle Bobby". They are great kids. Your nephews name is Robert. After you. Stina got married this past June. We felt your presence there. Paul and Dad are good. Working hard. Not a day goes by that we don't think about you. Reminisce about all the good times we had with you. Wish we had longer. We love you so much and will NEVER forget you!!! You are forever in our hearts.

Hi Robbie,
Thinking of you and missing you today.Very hard to beleive it has been 9 years next month.

I've been wanting to write down my memories for a while.
I am seven months older than you and you were always somebody I looked up to.
I have so many memories of our childhood.
Riding big wheels and bikes in the basement.  Playing the sports hand held video games with your mom.

On the high school football team, I remember how strong and talented you were, always remaining modest. When you would hit you reminded me of a train that could not be stopped or slowed down.  The coach used to always put us up against each other and this one day I felt strong enough to give you a good shot.  You didn't stop or slow down and my shoulder was sore for months.
I will never forget the time you broke that heavy duty one man sled in half.  You had the upper half of the sled on you shoulder and turned to the coach saying," what do you want me to do with this".  Hysterical.
You were a great guy with a great big heart who had so many friends who loved you.

You were the strongest guy I knew and I could have never imagined you leaving us.  One thing I know for sure is that you are looking down us and continue to protect us. -Doug
