I only knew Robert online, but he and I had many conversations. Good conversations. Substantive conversations. I will miss talking to him. May he rest in peace.

Rob was the bestest friend I could ever have! We all had so many good times together! I will miss his smile and laugh and sense of rumor! I remember the chitlings dinner he spent all day cooking for us! Smelled awful but did taste pretty damn good! Love you girl and am proud to call you my friend!
