I can still picture him swaying to and fro on the balls of feet while jiggling the change in his pocket . All the time smiling, and happy go lucky. Thanks, Robert for being my true friend and God Bless you brother."

"Robert was a very good friend of me and my husband Bills.  We spent alot of time with him and Rosie throughout the last quite a few years.  I will miss him teasing me and his smile.  Most of all I will miss his presence.  I can still see him now next to Rosie giving me a hard time with Tammy behind the bar and Bill, Rosie and me doing a shot.  I know he is with God which comforts me."

"Hello Little Brother. I still can't believe that you are gone. Here I am retiring and you were supposed to look after me---not fair. I remember so many things from when you were a little boy and I was supposed to take care of you---you were my responsibility. And it stayed that way for a long time. Remembering all the fun times we had as kids. Love, Linda"

"The comments about Robert and his coffee make me smile. I can't tell you how many cups we drank while we talked about plant operations,  the company and the industry. He was a great teacher and, from a communicator's point of view, easy to write for and work with. Thanks, Robert."
