  1. Robbie was a classmate of mine. I had not seen him in many years, but ran into him a couple of years ago and we chatted like the years never mattered. He was so sweet and kind. It made my day running into him again.. God bless the Coley family.


  2. I arrived to the area in April this year and Robbie was one of the first people that welcomed me to the neighborhood. He would always ask how my family and I was adjusting to the area and how the house was coming along. He thanked me for my service often and told me many stories about him growing up and living here. He would always joke about my car asking when I was going to bring my mustang home (to his house). Thanks for making me feel comfortable by being so friendly, you will be missed. My God bless your soul and your family. Rest easy friend…
