Thank you for stopping by and checking in. We set this page up to share Robert's journey through his fight against lymphoma. He's a lifelong fan of rasslin' (even training at a real wrestling school back in the day) and many of the things we'll use to keep him encouraged will be related to that mess 😹
On a serious note though, Robert is one of the best men I know. He's been my best friend and husband for almost 28 years. He's an awesome Daddy to our two kids-Wheeler, 14 and Hanna-Lynn, 11. He's a US Navy Veteran-having served active duty as a Boiler Tech and then in active reserves as a Firefighting Instructor. He worked many years at Newport News Shipyard helping build and repair naval ships. And for the past 15 years he's served the community as a Professional Firefighter.
He looks like a tough guy but he's really a big ole teddy bear and he needs all the support from family and friends that he can get. While our personal faith is Christianity, we are blessed to have friends with many different faith backgrounds and we covet any prayers, good thoughts and positive energy sent out on his behalf.
I wish I could thank each of you in person by hugging your neck and fixing you a sandwich and some sweet tea but until that can happen please accept our heartfelt gratitude for being a part of this trip. He's thinking his team's name may be Big Daddy's Stardust Squad. I kinda like it too and will update when the final decision is made.
