So sorry to hear of cousin Robert's passing. He was such a kind and gentile man and I have lots of of good memories of him from my youth.

Please except my condolences. May you find comfort in knowing that your dear one is safe in the memory of God, who will remember every detail about him and bring him back again. John 5:28, 29 gives this assurance.
