A Year After His Passing
October 8, 2008

We Miss Rob Dearly - A tribute to Him from Mary and Lucian

It's hard to believe that a year has past,
A life that was gone way too fast,
But we all have wonderful memories that will last and last!

I think it's fair to say, that on behalf of ourselves and his very vast clan,
Our Uncle, Brother, Friend and Son Rob was a very colorful and wonderful man.

In times of trouble, he was always there to give you a hand,
Along with it came advice, a good story and you knew exactly where he would stand.

Between his Family and Friends not a day goes by,
That we don't think of this wonderful, lovable guy.

He fought hard to the very end,
So on this sad day, all our love we want to send.

It was no accident that his final resting place would be,
At Holy Name, next to John, under a tree.

If you stop to visit, you will find him on the hill, under a Spruce,
Buried with no other than, his best friend Moose.

All our love,
Mary & Lucian Jordan
