We are saddened to know that Robert has passed away. Praying for God’s comfort and peace to carry you and the family during this time. We saw Robert a good while ago in the grocery store. I didn’t see him but he saw me and made it a point to speak. We were so glad he did. Our families have known each other for many many years. Ann and my mother Shirley were good friends. Hugs and prayers!
