My first memory of Robert when I was six years when he would come over to my dad's. I saw him as a wonderful man and a father figure as I was growing up. My favorite memories of him was I was with their family. I grew up with nena and always had fun with her. My prayers are with you sandy and nena and the rest of the family.
