Robert left a lasting impression on me since the first day that I met him. I felt like I could tell him anything and he would always listen and share his valuable knowledge and advice with me. This world was a better place with Robert on it. But I know that he is in heaven now smiling down on us all while hunting arrowheads. May you Rest In Peace my friend.

Janie, I am so sorry for your loss. Robert was a special friend whom I will always remember. His love for you was a true love story. I feel blessed to have reconnected with him and to get to know you. I'm sure he is in a good place with those who have gone before him. I can picture him with Jack, Bill, and Charlie reliving old times. Let me know if I can be of any support for you. Patsy Auld Sanders.
