A very special thank you goes out to all of the wonderful people at the Skaalen Nursing Home. You all touched Robert's life and heart. You made the journey loving and peaceful for him and his family. For that we will be forever grateful.
"Don't think of him as gone away his journey's just begun,
life holds so many facets this earth is only one.
Just think of him as resting from the sorrows and the tears
in a place of warmth and comfort where there are no days and years.
Think how he must be wishing that we could know today
how nothing but our sadness can really pass away.
And think of him as living
in the hearts of those he touched... for nothing loved is ever lost
and he was loved so much."
"I won't be here, but I'll always be right there Even though I'm leavin', I ain't goin' nowhere"
You had a good run, Grandpa, a whole 80 years. But now, you're free from this disease, and you have been reunited with the family and friends that preceded you on that trip to the place in the sky. I love you! Thank you for all the stories, cars, and most of all, your unconditional love. -Cassi Guy
Mr. Dad, you are always the very best part of my day. It was my honor to be your co-pilot on this journey. No goodbyes, just see you later, hugs, kisses, and I love you. I'm so glad you're mine. Your Loving Daughter, Jeanette Guy
