Uncle Robert, you will be forever missed. You have always had a way of finding your way into the hearts of everyone you met, and our family is no exception. Not having you here is hard, but we know you are looking down on us, and with that we try and find peace. Until we meet again my uncle, my friend.
With love forever and always,
Kenny, Kyla, Haley, Tristan, Gauge, and Bella Osborn

I love you so much, you were always there and now your gone, you have always been the Little Big brother, cause I was the oldest but you were the wisest, I'm gonna miss our talks over coffee all the things you wanted to get done by the end of the day, I love you Bubby. Robert loved EVERYONE in his own way and he would do anything for you and ask little in return He was a simple man, he never required the fancy things in life but he worked dam hard so he could give the fancy things in life, that's who my brother was. A devoted husband, Father, Grandpa, Brother, Uncle, Cousins, Friend, and Mentor.
