To The Family of Robert White,

As the days and weeks pass, and as you return to life’s routine, may you continue to feel comforted by the love and support of family and friends. I pray God will give you strength each day and forever fill your hearts with joy.

I consider it a blessing to have been Robert’s sister-in-law and I’m very happy I got a chance to see him when he came down for his mother’s homegoing celebration. He made his entire family proud of his contributions to this country and he’s a true American hero! Well done faithful soldier! You will be missed dearly!

Rest in heaven.

To the White family,
I send my condolences for you to be strong in this time of grief. ROBERT was a great guy who always had stories to share when we would work long hours at the Air terminal. He was always smiling and joking and was a pleasure to talk with. His army stories kept me laughing and his comparing the Air Force to it always made me feel I joined the right service…he was a good listener and always helped people out when needed. He will be missed dearly by all whom he connected with and I still can’t believe he’s gone as I know you may feel the same. May this time though reflected on his memory will never fade. I will forever miss him as a coworker and lottery friend..he always played and shared his numbers. May he rest in peace. This angel has made it home.

My sincere condolences to the family. The loss of a loved one grieves the heart and words are never enough to take away the pain. However, our Heavenly Father knows your grief. As a loving and caring Father, He will be there to comfort and sooth your “broken-heart and crushed spirit”. ( Psalm 34:18 ). May you find comfort and hope in God’s promise of a day when you will reunite with your loved one again. ( Isaiah 26:19 ).

Rest in Heaven, Uncle! I remember looking you asking about my orders to Virginia and I was so thrilled because I knew I’d have family there. So sorry I couldn’t transfer sooner. I know you’re in a better place. I will miss you!! -Jadda Brokenberry Jason and the Jason’s.
