On behalf of my uncle:
"I have many stories about him -- they are all great memories. I took a photographic course from him. Imagine that, a young guy from Mabou... his student! … Every summer I would visit him and June in Mabou Coal Mines. The last time I went to see him, June said he was not feeling well. What a great guy... He gave me some personal items signed by him and the photos he took of me. I always treasured those... Godspeed, Robert." -- Cyril Cameron
