  1. My sweet girls, Tami, Megan, and Lena, my heart is broken for you. Your dad/Boompa loved each of you unconditionally and was so proud of every one of you. He wanted the very best for each of you as you journey through this life. Tami and Megan, he was a wonderful father and we all can see his positive influence in your lives. He longed to watch Lena grow into the beautiful young woman she will surely become. He was a healthy man with many years ahead and although we may never understand all the implications in this tragedy, he will live forever in our hearts. But, he is with Mema, Pepa, and Clint and he is free from all the heartache and pain in this life. Rest in peace, dear Robert.
