I enjoyed dancing with Mr. Roberson, whenever there were events that we attended that had music, he would be the first one on the dance floor. He would get on that dance floor just as smooth with a smile on his face, with his head moving from side to side, like he was the only person on that floor. He would be in a zone, I mean until he would break out into a sweat smiling from ear to ear. We all would just sit back watching him to see the joy on his face.
