Dear Family,
All of the members of the American Legion, from across the great state of Tennessees join me in extending our sincere condolences on the passing of your precious Mr Robert. It has been amazing to read his legacy of love and service to this great country, his family and the American Legion. All of us join together to honor a soldier for his faithful service as an important time in the history of this nation. May God now go to work to heal your hearts as you travel on a grief journey for a while. May He send 10,000 stories to be shared with the world. When you look at the list of service Robert took a part in I am sure there is an abundance of precious stories and memories of life and love and service. May our gracious God send 10,000 hugs because that is how many I have come to believe it takes to figure out a grief journey. May He now rest well from his labors as God lifts your spirits and brings joy to your hearts.

I respected Mr. Robert, he always was kind and respectable in all ways. He surely will leave a very large hole in our Veterans affairs for Calhoun County. May our God's Grace give you peace and hope during this hard time.

Sarge was the best. All of The 595th loved His larger than life personality. Our Reunions will not be the same, He always carried the show. I loved Him and I think He felt the same even though I was a Yankee from of all places Massatoosetts. I will miss my friend. Richard J. O'Neil PS I'M not from the south but I got here as soon as I could!
