I miss everything about Robert. I miss his smile, his laugh, his text messages, his voice mails and how he always knew what to say. I miss his voice more than anything in the world. I miss his comforting words and his hugs and kisses. I miss him more than anyone will ever know.

Tell us about your loved one.

Robert turned 28 years old in September. Robert was a son, a grandson, a nephew, a brother, a cousin, an uncle, a father and a friend. Robert was a true handyman! He could do anything from fixing a car to painting to cooking dinner for his family. Robert loved staying busy and had many dreams for his future. Robert loved painting and wanted to open his own company someday. Roberts’s mother passed away in February of 2012. Robert had three little sisters who looked up to him. Robert met the love of his life in 2011 and was blessed with two beautiful boys; Braxton in 2012 and Bentley in 2015.

Tell us about Robert's struggle with addiction

Robert was in a car accident in 2007. As his sister, I believe his addiction started after his body became immune to the pain medication his doctor was prescribing him. In 2009, Robert overdosed for the first time. Besides his “father” his family stuck by his side. We wanted him to get better and he wanted to get better too. Robert attended a detox program and when he got out we attended meetings with him. As his sister, I remember the meetings were everyday and each night was a different meeting. Robert was clean for a few months and then relapsed again. As his family, we held an intervention and explained how we all felt. Robert tried again to overcome his addiction. Robert relapsed and overdosed many times but he would try again to overcome his addiction. Roberts’s addiction became so bad that he would do whatever it took to get high; even if that meant stealing from his loved ones. As his family; we knew the drug was making him do this and this was not our Robert. Robert went to prison and earned his high school diploma. When he was out of prison, it was difficult for him to find a job therefore, he decided to attend college. Robert set goals for himself that he wanted to accomplish for his children. Robert lost his battle to overcome this addiction too soon and he deserved one more chance.

What made Robert smile?

I could go on for days about what made Robert smile. Robert met a girl named Nicole in 2011. When Robert talked about her or looked at her picture, he would smile. Robert knew from the moment he met her that he loved her. Robert used to tell me “Mant, she wears Hollister and Abercrombie and Fitch; you are going to love her! She is so cute and so small!” Robert had two beautiful little boys; Braxton and Bentley who were everything in the world to him. Robert was always talking about things he did with them and what he wanted to do with them. Robert was so proud of anything the boys did during the day. Robert loved helping other people. When he didn’t have a job, he repainted our Nanna and Papas house and would smile at anyone that commented on the work he had done. He would smile when they would brag to other people about how hard he had worked. Robert smiled about his pony tail and his beard, he knew he was so handsome and smiled when anyone said it.
