Just picked up the local paper and saw your Dad’s obit; I’m really sorry for your loss. I’ll always fondly remember Robert’s smile and sense of humor “don’t cha’ know…”. I’m certain you’ll miss him, as I do my Mom and Dad, but man they leave us with a lifetime of beautiful memories. I’ll be thinking about you, my friend, in the days and weeks to come…
