“To Those I Love And Those Who Love Me “

When I am gone, release me. Let me go
I have so many things to see and do.
You mustn’t tie yourself to me with tears, Be
happy, we had so many years.

I gave you my love and you can only guess
How much you gave to me in happiness.
I thank you for the love you each have shown
But now it’s time I traveled alone.

So grieve a while for me if grieve you must
Then let your grief be comforted by trust.
It’s only for a while that we must part
So bless those memories in your heart.

I won’t be far away for life goes on
So if you need me , call and I will come.
Though you can’t see or touch me, I’ll be near
with all my love around you soft and clear.

And then, when you must come this way alone,
I’ll greet you with a smile and “Welcome You
Home”.

  1. Bob when you died I lost My Right Hand Man. You were my GO TO GUY for 24 years and were irreplaceable. In all those years I don’t ever remember you ever speaking bad of anyone. You always did what I asked with a smile on your face. With deep regret for all of us at Mercury Metals who depended on your daily effort and cheerful attitude. Brother you were a kind and gentle soul always ready to help when asked and left us to soon. Sometimes I wonder why it always seems like THE GOOD DIE YOUNG.

  2. Bob, you were a such a good friend and neighbor. Always willing to help when I got in a jam, needed a ride because my truck was broke down or needed help with my motorcycle (which was on several occasions). You took me on my first ride after my motorcycle wreck in 2011, before I could ride again myself. You just smiled and said ‘Sure, hop on’. What a site that was, me in a back brace and cast up to my elbow, holding on with one arm, as we rode down Hempstead Hwy. Then, in late August I was mowing my grass and you were passing by to check on your house but you stopped just to ask me if I was tryin’ to give myself a heart attack…ha-ha, then proceeded to tell me what had happened to him in June. You stayed and we visited for about 30 minutes catching up on what was going on in each other’s lives. If I had known that was the last time I was going to see you I would have given you a great big hug. God help me to not take for granted the people in my life and to always remember that tomorrow is not promised. I hope you are riding on the wind now with a big smile on your face and free from the pain of missing your wife. I will miss seeing you around my friend. Remembering you always, GG

  3. Bob, You will always be missed. but you live on in our memory.
    You are loved. .

  10. my uncle was always on the move. so i could not see him as much as i would have liked too. but, when i did see him. i could see that… he had a great personality, a good heart filled with lots of love and compassion. he really enjoyed his life and “rode it out till the end.” he had tons of friends i can see and also some not so good friends or people around him as well. i will be thinking of him in my heart. it is sad for us that he left us too soon. but… GOD might have needed him on his team sooner then later. he is a great man and can do great things. i know i will see him and everyone else up there one day. but i hope not too soon for me. no offence uncle 🙂 but it will happen one day. no doubt 😛 i love you always <3 love your #1st niece Melissa you will always be in my heart.

  23. Bob, At times, I’m lost without you. At times, I laugh w/ memories of us. At times, I wonder how this happened. At times, I cry. At times, I’m wonderin how ur doin…i miss you more than anyone can ever imagine.

    When you needed a friend, u’d bang on my door, I’d open it and u knew life was ok. When I needed a friend, u’d track me down, and without fail, ud save my world. Not once, but a million times, rite up until the day u left for your new home w Jesus.

    Without u, I’m sorta incomplete. Friends like us are a once in a lifetime opportunity. U will never be replaced. Please know u r loved by many, and u r loved by me. I will see u in heaven someday…until then, just know, i love u bob Watson!!

  24. Baby, you left a big hole in this world and in my heart. I miss sitting in the backyard in the evenings and talking to you and playing with Kaiser and the babies. He misses you lots. Riding weather is here, I can see you now, with your blonde hair blowing in the wind – so very handsome. If you were here, we would be getting ready for our trip back to St. John. I have wonderful memories of us on the beach and you driving us around the crazy hills in the jeep.

    I know you and my mom are probably cracking jokes up there and now that my dad is there, you two are giving him heck – lol.They both liked you a lot. I am so grateful you were here to help me say goodbye to my mama.You were my rock and I love you forever. xoxo

  25. You know Robert its funny how everyone knew you as Bob, in Houston, but I guess I’m the only one who called you by your Birth name, also its funny how you dad and uncle Russell introduced there self to new people by using the nick names, dad used Bob instead of Robert when we were little, then when he got older he went by Robert and uncle Russell liked to be called Bill and the rest of us just kept our names. Love you, your sister Sheila
    I think about you everyday and wonder why you chose to ride your motor cycle being the way you were, I also think you didn’t see the center cement divider cause it was black and it was dark out don’t know if the street was lighted, I did not see any reflectors telling people there was a cement divider. I guess I could do Google earth to see what I see, since I don’t live in Texas Got to go for now. Bye
