Stephanie and family, I'm very sorry for your loss. I remember Robert when my sister and I visited Savannah several years ago. He was fun to be with, and a real gentlemen. He's gone, way too soon.

I'm so sorry you lost your dad at such a young age! He was a wonderful dad and grandfather. It was always fun watching him play with his grandkids - usually teasing them and lots of squealing and laughter. You always came first in his life. I know he will continue to watch over you all. Love you!
