From Facebook entries we learn:
I am so honored to have watched you grow up into such a brave man I’m sure you had many things in life undone, but what you did was the ultimate for all of us. I Love you Robby and I will be here to look out for your family! Tammy
I remember BBQing, you playing football in the yard with the boys. Talking about our future plans. You and Kelly were so happy. I lost a good friend, Kelly and the boys lost a great hubby and father, and the world lost a hero and a great man. I also remember the last night I saw you, in our lovely Walmart. I never seen you so stressed out, buying all your final things for boot camp. And Jay and I remember what you said to us…To take care of Kelly and the kids…and we always will…love you and miss you….may you rest in peace.. Melissa.
