    I already miss you dad. Tomorrow is your funeral and I know there will be a lot of tears but I promise we will laugh a lot too. I’m gonna take good care of momma, just like I promised you. When I make it to heaven I know that you will be there waiting for me. I love you dad ❤

    RIP, Chief Roblyer. I just learned of your passing on the All-Time CT Register website. You were my instructor for the advanced phase of CT school in Pensacola; I have a photo of my graduation in April ’68, with me shaking hands with the XO and you looking on proudly. From there I went to Bremerhaven, where I believe you had previously served. Thanks for helping me get there, and above all, thank you for your service to our country. God bless you.
