    Heikes Family, We are so sorry to hear of Roberts passing. He was such a wonderful man. We are also extremely sorry that we were unable to attend Roberts service last night and that we are unable to be there with you today, but our entire family has the stomach flu. We hope to see you sometime soon (once we are not contagious) until than, we will do our best to hold you up in prayer. Love, The Steiners Steve, Jessica, Sydney, Lauren, and Sienna
