I shall always remember you at the ballfield cheering on Colby and all of the others on the team. I don’t ever recall not seeing you there. So many times I can remember you saying “that Joey is a good solid ballplayer”. What a good, kind family man. There will definitely be a void here on earth for those who knew you. Heaven has gained a wonderful soul. Prayers to you all during this time. The Farrow’s
I cannot make it by the funeral home but I wanted to extend the sympathy of my family to all of you. Growing up I remember listening to Robert tell stories at the family gatherings, the reunions, or chicken stew. I used to like hearing about his life. May God hold you all tight and give you the comfort you need at this time.
I am so sorry for the families loss. Robert and Annette always treated people like family, he will greatly be missed. Love you Annette and our family will be praying for y’all 💗
