    Always remember that sweet smile... My heart aches for your family Rob. Miss you buddy..❤️ FOREVER I may be invisible to your sight But I am forever here. You may not hear me speak But I am forever whispering in your ear. You may not feel my touch But I am forever by your side. You may not feel my presence But I am forever going to remind you that my soul has not died. You may not see my face but I am forever smiling at you. You may not know I’m there But I am forever watching what you do. I may not breathe the same air But I am forever holding you. And although I cannot be seen I am Forever…like my love for you.
