    I’m very sad that I was not able to travel to pay my respects to my grandfather. I always looked forward to when he would come visit us when I was young. He stood as tall as trees and as strong as mountains. And loved us loved us with his hugs. And that’s how I remember this great man. I called him a few times before he pasted. I just wish there could have been more times with him growing up. But what I did get to keep was memories the best ones a grand child could have of this mountain of a man. Love you always. And what times I have of you to be continue love always Robert Gerald colley named after grand pa and uncle Robert chambers. And I know there are 6 more grandchildren, and 4 more with my mom Carole and uncle Robert so there he has 15 more and at least 10 or more great children plus 11 great great or more with at least 2 great great great ones today. And hello to my aunts uncles and cousins that i have or not have met because of my grandfather. Who was my father figure growing up along with a great uncles and aunts
