I will miss my cousin, Bobby – we both grew up at Millet and then we each went our separate ways. We would get back together at family functions, Weddings and the like.
Will be so different without you around Bobby and until we meet again, RIP my friend. Shirley ‘Ann’ .

It’s been years, actually I met the Elder Family back at the house in Millet. I was introduced to you all through a mutual friend.. Her name was Lu, and he was a friend of Ruth’s, and Staunton. I was reading the journal, and came across Robert’s obit. So I just wanted to send prayers to your Family . May he rest in peace, and God Speed. Some of you may remember me like Ron… sorry I can’t remember everyone’s name. But God bless.
