Uncle Robert

Early Saturday morning, Robert Rivers was taken from us in a house fire.
Robert never met a stranger and would help anyone in any way he could. Many may know him or have seen him riding down Main Street on his "scooter". Robert was legally blind but it never put a shadow on his spirit or his "get up and go". He loved his family and although his health was not the best in the last few years, he made sure he checked on everyone whether it was through a phone call or a hospital visit on his scooter or he caught a ride.
Before his mother and sister passed away, he was by their side taking care of their needs. There never was a task that he could not do! I still remember getting him to weed eat my yard because he insisted he could do it!!
His health deteriorated more and more the last few months where he was in and out of the hospitals. Towards the end, he was unable to walk. Never did we believe he would go in this terrible way, though.
He does have a plot for his burial, but no insurance for a proper funeral.
Any donation would be greatly appreciated!!

Robert and I met in Oceans Mental Hospital two years ago. I know it sounds impossible, but we fell in love. I loved him with all my heart and whenever I would talk to him he would tell me over and over how much he loved me. He asked me to never forget him. He was the only man that ever loved me. He was about as special as they come. He was going to come and stay with me here in Kinder, but we never could get our ducks in row. I'm so very sorry for the family and for myself, too. He will be terribly missed. Cindy and Anna, I wish so much I could be there with you.
