    Dear Isabel and Alison
    I am a friend of the Smith, and for many years heard about Robert from his Mom and Aunt Edith “Smitty”, so I felt like I knew him too. From the deepest part of my heart, I send hugs to you both, and to your families. I cannot imagine the pain of losing a husband so young, but can imagine the pain of losing a child. My sympathy to you all. Robert has been in our thoughts and prayers for a while.I hope that you all will maintain the strength that it took to go through the experience of cancer with its unfortunate end, and that eventually life will feel lighter again some day soon. Please take very good care of yourselves and eachother.
    Theresa

    Robert came into this world surrounded by love, and he left this world surrounded by love. And in his short life, he still certainly touched many with the love he had for all. I will remember him most for his great kindness and thoughtfulness especially to his parents; for the absolute love and devotion he had for Allison who was the “rock in his life”; the loyalty and respect he had for his brother Gordie and Laura; the warmth and welcome he had for his aunts who reached out across the miles to comfort him; and of course for being such a great buddy and friend to Kola, his dog. Robert, you are not a bright light that went out in our lives, but instead, you are a brighter light who now shines on us from afar. May God enfold you in His love, and comfort those you have left behind.

  104. In this incredible time of sadness for our whole family, I want to speak instead, of the joy you have been in our lives. Watching you grow into the incredible young man you became, brought great pride to us all: a loving and devoted husband, a faithful son, and a loyal brother and friend. Your kindness and decency to all, made you a steadfast man of integrity. You always went about life quietly, reaching out to be there for others in your quiet, unassuming,cheerful way. Even in the midst of your illness, you showed a strength of character and will, which made you a beacon of hope and an example to all. You wanted to be so strong for everyone else. But most of all, what brought me the greatest joy throughout your whole life, was how your heart was always in the right place, as you valued family, and friends above all. We’ll always know you are close, watching over us, and loving us.

    Love, Aunt Edith
    Antigonish NS
