While individuals we care about may be far away, they are never far from our thoughts. Still loved, still missed, and always remembered with fondness. This morning I learned of the death of a close friend. After serving time in jail, Robert Lynch was instrumental in giving me a second opportunity and helping me on my path to establishing a stable home life.
The basis of who I am today was laid by his compassion. Please join me in a minute of silence for Robert Lynch, who was the owner of Kilkenny’s Ale House on Halsey Street in Newark, New Jersey. We shall miss you and never forget you. Be at peace with God. In 2018, I was honored by being selected as the parade’s Grand Marshal in West Orange.
It was an honor to participate in the parade with my loved ones and the families of three extraordinary Deputy Grand Marshals: Brad Squires, Sean McGinley, and Robert Lynch. We were inseparable during the Parade Season. My heart sunk last night when I learned of Rob’s passing. A guy has been lost. I have no doubt that Rob is at peace in the arms of the Blessed Mother, who will keep watch over his loved ones from above. Rob and his loved ones would appreciate your continued prayers.
