I have known Uncle Robert all my life ! Always a kind person! Most of my time he spoke with a tender voice.
When I was younger I remember the map on the kitchen wall with pins over it . I asked what was that and his answer was “ Let me show you” It was his Hurricane Map! He tracked Hurricanes! I have been doing this as well . Who would have known that I would move to Miami for 29 years. I could of wrote a book about Hurricanes! I am now in Cape May, NJ. I still track. Uncle Robert you will be missed but I will be talking to you up in Heaven and hug Mom and Nana and Uncle Henry for me 🥰💔 I love you.
