Condolences

Georgia and I were so sorry to hear of Robert's passing. Although we have not communicated or seen one another for many years we were close as children in Port Allen and the bond of family is still strong. Our thoughts and prayers are with Aunt Eunice and all of the family as you mourn this loss of a cherished member of the family.

Ms. Deb, I am so sorry for your loss. He will be missed by many who loved all three of you (Can't forget the baby that goes everywhere). It was the highlight of my day to see you come into the Waffle House every day. Since I moved, I have visited a few times in hopes of catching you all there. But I couldn't seem to run into you. Please know, I loved the smiles and jokes he always had. He was truly one of a kind. Let me know if there is anything you need or that I can do. Prayers for you and your wonderful family. He is watching down on you now and always. With Love, Jackie M. Norsworthy
