Mr. Robert is one of my fondest memories of moving to NC. I came when I was 21 and he was one of the first people I met. My Mom worked for him. He always seemed to be able to make me smile even on the sad days after My Mom passed away. I know he and Mama are in heaven having them a good ol" time. He will surely be missed. God bless to his family...
