    Rest in Peace Uncle Rob, I’m glad we did get to have some time together. You will always have that place in my heart. Life does go in strange directions and time is precious, really goes by so fast. I will always have good thoughts of you. Thank you for letting me know some of the things I didn’t know on mom (Linda L. Brittain Hinson) and your family it meant a lot to me. Love you and will miss you, I’m sure mom and all who are with you are happy to have you in the arms of our Lord in perfect love and peace. See you on the other side, prayers for family and friends to have strength during this time of loss. Love and hugs to you. RIP Christine Michelle (Missy)
