I worked with Robert at Southeast Airmotive for several years. He was a good man and I am glad to have known him.

Rest in Peace Robert.

Loretta and boys, I'm so sorry to hear of Uncle Bob's death. My memories of him are on Moon St. in Thomasville when I'd visit as a child. If Bob was there, he'd always be shy but open to playing and making me comfortable. He'd sometimes show me neat things in Grandfather's workshop. I wish you all peace and good memories during this sad time.

Love,
Sydney Sherrill Gingrow

My thoughts and prayers are with you all. Mama will be 91 this Friday, October 29. She would be so sad to know that she has lost another brother. Alzheimer’s will prevent her from understanding, but I will tell her when I visit . In Christian love, Karen
