I love you Robert.... you were always a better dad to me than my own. Even after you and mama were always there when I needed you and for that I am truly grateful. And I'm pretty sure MaryJean was at the gates to meet you and that makes me smile. Love you always...

I met Robert many years ago when I worked for Trust Company Bank, in the Indirect Lending Department - working with him on the financing end of the car business. He was a very sweet man with a big heart. May God Bless you, his family and give you the strength that only he can. Keep those great memories close to you hearts.
