Josephine, mi Chica,
If ever there was a time I could be there with you, it would be now. Robert was one of the kindest and most generous gentlemen we shall even have the fortune to have known. You both took us in as a family and treated us like that ever since. He will be forever loved and you are in our thoughts and prayers.
Love you so much,
Nanci, Walter, Christian and Kimmie
