In Loving
Memory

Gary W. Robertson

June 2, 1963 – May 3, 2022

Gary W. Robertson, 58, of Richmond passed away Tuesday, May 3, 2022.

A graveside service will be held at  at 1 p.m. on Wednesday, May 18 at Washington Memorial Park in Sandston, VA.

“When I come to the end of the road, and the sun has set for me,
I want no rites in a gloom-filled room; why cry for a soul set free!
Miss me a little – but not for long, and not with your head bowed low.
Remember the love that we once shared; miss me, but let me go.
For this journey that we all must take and each must go alone;
It’s all a part of the Master’s plan; a step on the road to home.
When you are lonely and sick at heart, go to the friends we know,
And bury your sorrows in doing good deeds. Miss me, but let me go.”

It’s not goodbye
It is until we meet again when our roads connect somewhere upon the bend

    Gary, you will always live in our hearts as this witty and extremely kind person. We hate to let you go but knowing you must feel good to be free now gives us comfort and strength in this hard time. Rest In Peace!

    You will be missed and always in my heart my baby brother. I so wish we could have spent more time together but here we are and we will meet again. Until then, fly high and say hello to Mom, Dad and Mark for me. RIP! I love you!

    The guys and I miss you my friend. That goofy little laugh and the twinkle in your eye when you had a winning poker hand. Make us a tee time, but not too early. We miss you my brother.

    Our song:

    Without you, there’s no change
    My nights and days are grey
    If I reached out and touched the rain
    It just wouldn’t feel the same

    Without you, I’d be lost
    I’d slip down from the top
    I’d slide down so low
    You never, never know

    Without you, my hope is small
    Let me be me all along
    Let the fires rage inside
    Knowing someday I’d grow strong

    I could face a mountain
    But I could never climb alone
    I could start another day
    But how many, just don’t know

    You’re the reason the sun shines down
    And the nights, they don’t grow cold
    Only you that I’ll hold when I’m young
    Only you as we grow old

    I’ve been looking so long at these pictures of you
    That I almost believe that they’re real…

    You were so lost in the dark
    Remembering you how you used to be

    Hold for the last time then slip away quietly
    Open my eyes, but I never see anything

    If only I’d thought of the right words
    I could have held on to your heart
    If only I’d thought of the right words
    I wouldn’t be breaking apart all my pictures of you

    There was nothing in the world that I ever wanted more
    Than to feel you deep in my heart
    There was nothing in the world that I ever wanted more
    Than to never feel the breaking apart
    My pictures of you…..

    Happy Birthday my love……

    Hold me when you go to sleep
    Keep me in the warmth of your love
    I miss the emergence and these moments of you
    Keep me close
    Safe and sound

    Voices, a thousand, thousand voices
    Whispering, the time has passed for choices
    Golden days are passing over, yeah
    I can’t seem to see you baby
    Although my eyes are open wide
    But I know I’ll see you once more
    When I see you, I’ll see you on the other side
    Yes, I’ll see you, I’ll see you on the other side
    Leaving, I hate to see you cry
    Grieving, I hate to say good-bye
    Dust and ash forever, yeah
    Though I know we must be parted
    As sure as stars are in the sky
    I’m gonna see when it comes to glory
    And I’ll see you, I’ll see you on the other side
    Yes, I’ll see you, I’ll see you on the other side
    Never thought I’d feel like this
    Strange to be alone, yeah
    But we’ll be together
    Carved in stone, carved in stone, carved in stone
    Hold me, hold me tight I’m falling
    Far away, distant voices calling
    I’m so cold, I need you darling, yeah
    I was down, but now I’m flying
    Straight across the great divide
    I know you’re crying, but I’ll stop you crying
    When I see you, I see you on the other side
    Yes, I’ll see you, see you on the other side.
    I’m gonna see you, see you on the other side
    God knows I’ll see you, see you on the other side, yeah
    I’ll see you, see you on the other side
    I’m gonna see you, see you on the other side
    God knows I’ll see you, see you on the other side
    I want to see you, yeah, yeah, yeah, see you on the other side
    God knows I’ll see you, see you on the other side
    I’m gonna see you, see you on the other side

    Hi, it’s the year of the Water Rabbit, your year :). I miss you more each day, thought time can heal, I feel the opposite.

    Lines on your face don’t bother me
    Down in my chair when you dance over me
    I can’t help myself
    I’ve got to see you again

    Late in the night when I’m all alone
    And I look at the clock and I know you’re not home
    I can’t help myself
    I’ve got to see you again

    I could almost go there
    Just to watch you be seen
    I could almost go there
    Just to live in a dream

    Happy Spring, I miss you.

    Long ago I wished to leave
    Long ago I used to grieve,
    My home seemed so forlorn.
    In other years, its silent rooms
    Were filled with haunting fears;
    Now, their very memory comes
    O’ercharged with tender tears.

    Life and marriage I have known,
    Things once deemed so bright;
    Now, how utterly is flown
    Every ray of light!

    One loved voice, through surge and blast,
    Could call me back again.
    My soul, exulting then:

    Tears, I know not what they mean,
    Tears from the depth of some divine despair
    Rise in the heart, and gather to the eyes,

    And thinking of the days that are no more.

    I miss you…..

    I will remember you, will you remember me?
    Remember the good times that we had?
    I let them slip away from us when things got bad
    I’m so tired but I can’t sleep
    Standing on the edge of something much too deep
    It’s funny how we feel so much but we cannot say a word
    We are screaming inside, but we can’t be heard
    So afraid to love you
    But more afraid to lose
    Clinging to a past that doesn’t let me choose
    Once there was a darkness
    Deep and endless night
    You gave me everything you had,

    I miss you everyday…..

    Gary, I think of you and miss you everyday. Remember we used to say this to each other while laughing at the same time?
    “We’re just two lost souls, swimming in a fish bowl”. We were far from perfect, but we had each other.

    I keep your pictures on my wall
    Went half crazy now and then
    But I still love you through it all
    Hoping you would come back now

    You were all dressed up, and they carried you away
    Please don’t stop loving me now
    They placed a wreath upon your door

    Do you still love me today?

    Year after year
    Running over the same old ground
    What have we found?
    The same old fears
    Wish you were here

    My love is in league with the freeway
    Its passion will rise as the cities fly by
    And the tail lights dissolve in the coming of night
    And the questions and thousands take flight
    My love is a-miles in awaiting
    The eyes that just stare and the glance at the clock
    And the secret that burns, and the pain that grows dark
    And it’s you once again
    Leading me on (leading me on)
    Leading me down the road
    Driving me on (driving me on)
    Driving me down the road
    My love is exceedingly vivid
    Red-eyed and fevered with the hum of the miles
    Distance and longing, my thoughts do provide
    Should I rest for a while at the side?
    Your love is cradled in knowing
    Eyes in the mirror still expecting they’ll come
    Sensing too well when the journey is done
    There is no turning back, no
    There is no turning back
    On the run
    My love is in league with the freeway
    Oh, with the freeway
    And the coming of the night time
    My love, my love
    Is in league with the freeway

    I miss you everyday, think of you everyday, I’m lost without you, I wish and I wish but the reality is you are not here, I miss your tenderness, forgiving, and loved me unconditionally, I will never find it again.

    It’s year of the dragon, I don’t want your year to end, to leave me alone, I’m so alone. Love you more. 💖 come find me.

    I had a vision of you
    And just like that
    I was left to live without it
    Left to live without it
    I found a version of love
    And just like that
    I was left to live without it
    Left to live without it

    Waiting for this storm to pass
    Waiting on this side of the glass

    There is something between us
    Between me and you
    There is something between us
    I see right through

    I had a version of home
    And just like that
    I was left to live without it
    Left to live without it
    I had a person I loved
    And just like that
    I was left to live without him
    Left to live without him

    Waiting for this storm to pass
    Waiting on this side of the glass

    Happy Bday…I miss you and waiting for you to come see me every day…I’m alone always
