I attended the funeral today of a good friend of the family, Robert Kurtus Hawkin. As my little brother was growing up Robert was his best friend I remember numerous nights he spent sleeping over at our house, running him and my brothers crew to the movies ( and picking them up). Robert was a sweet kid and always had a smile, his passing is truly sad. The funny thing was after we had known Robert for years we come to find out that he was the Godson of my sisters husband Maani. It made it seem like he was even more a part of the family. Here is the obit in the Orange County Register:
