Barbara, Ms Grace, Linda, Charles, and Laurie,
I am so sorry to hear about Robert. We worked together for many years and I always considered him a great friend. I am thankful that he finally retired and at least had two years to enjoy himself. He would stop in and tell me how much he was enjoying his retirement! Please know that you are in my thoughts and prayers.

Rest in Peace my friend, never forget that 1970 Challenger and me telling you
to slow down out on the Athens Highway, seems like a lifetime ago.

We grew up together on Oconee and Apalachee Avenue. Moon's Grocery Store was the center of our world. The 50's & 60's were full of good memories.
REST IN PEACE MY FRIEND.

Robert is a part of the many good memories I have growing up in Greensboro. We were in the Boy Scouts together, and I remember seeing him in the halls at school. Always positive and energetic. A good friend to everyone.
