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.
