    With Great Sorrow I am writing this. I’ve known Robert and the family for the many years of coming to White Ranch each deer season. They have allowed me to be a part of their family and have gone out of their way to assist me in anything I needed while I was there. I have so much respect and gratitude for Robert and the family. Upon first meeting Robert, It was Mr. Holloway.Through the years it became Robert. In my eyes and I believe his, we became friends.He was an inspiration to me of how a man should act and present himself. He was and always will be a respectable, considerate, hospitable, and righteous man. When Austin called and let me know of his passing, I cried and prayed. I’m not a person that does such, but with thought I realized it was because Robert had touched my heart in many ways that I did not realize until now. I will never forget the conversations with him and great meals Mary prepared and invited me to. To me he treated me as family. I thought the same of him. I feel the same towards all of the Holloway Family. No intent to leave any of U out on my comments. Robert is not gone, just the body that held his soul. He will always be looking down upon us. No doubt in my mind he will be at the gates of heaven waiting for all upon our passing. Remember, When some one You love passes away. You never quite get over it. U just learn slowly how to go on without their presence, but always keeping them tucked safely in your heart. Upon seeing the obituary on the funeral home’s website, I could not hold back the uncontrollable tears that I shed seeing the happy smile on his face, that I had seen for so many years. I realized it was not just a friendship, but Love for a well deserving person. I thank God for giving me the pleasure of meeting Robert and the Holloway Family.

    I appreciate the pleasure of this to be read during this ceremony on my behalf for a person that will forever be in my heart. God Bless You All.

    Robert Taylor and Family

    My Uncle Robert had such a profound impact on my life, it is hard to put into words. He is the sweetest and most loving man I have ever known. When I was a teenager he welcomed me into his home though he struggled to feed his own family. He never asked me for a thing, but he gave me a lot. He taught me how to respect others and their property. He taught me how to love and express that love. He played a very major role in helping me to grow into the person I am today. One time when I was 16, he explained to me how helicopters fly. I didn’t believe him. The next year I joined the Army and was trained as a helicopter mechanic. Guess what? Uncle Robert was right. But then he usually was. I am so thankful I got to spend time with him these past 2 years. That time is very special to me. I am happy my wife Corky was able to meet Uncle Robert this past October. She formed an instant love for him and all of the family. We both will miss him terribly but thankfully he is no longer suffering.

    I am thankful that I have had Uncle Robert in my life. He has always been the same, never changing. People say that a child knows that you love them by the look on their face when you see them. I always felt loved by Uncle Robert because he always had a smile on his face and always acted like he was glad to see me. I remember him calling me Katydid, one of his pet names. I don’t ever remember seeing him with a frown on his face or ever hear him saying anything bad about anyone. He was the same person all the time. I know in my heart that God called one of his special people home. I love you Uncle Robert.

    Bro Robert Holloway: I feel honored to have had the opportunity to have known him and his wonderful family. He was the most loving example of how a Christian should live their lives and how to conduct themselves. I will never be able to be in Church or watch SBN without seeing Bro Robert lift his hand and point his finger as if pointing to the Lord Jesus Christ, as Jesus is the only way to get to Heaven’s gate. I loved Bro and Sis Holloway with all my heart, and I have had nothing but total respect for a great man of God. I am looking forward to seeing him again someday. God bless Sis Mary and the whole family.

    We were so very sorry to hear of Bro. Holloway’s passing, but we know in our hearts that he is rejoicing in the Lord now and for all eternity. Bro. Robert lived his life with amazing and unwavering faith, which was a beautiful testimony to those who knew him. He was loved by all of his family and friends, as well as his church family and we will miss him greatly. It is very unfortunate that the weather has prevented so many of us who loved him to be able to attend the service, but please know that we are with you in spirit and we are praying for you all, that God will give you His peace and comfort you during this time. This world has lost a kind, loving, and generous man – and Heaven has gained another Saint! Bro. Robert has been welcomed into the eternal Campmeeting, basking in the presence of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, forevermore.
