I am saddened to hear of Robert's passing. He was one of the kindest people I have ever known. Whenever our paths crossed, he never failed to stop and have a conversation. He would often end those conversations with " If I can help you, just holler". I was just a teenager and his kindness left an impression. Please accept my sincere condolences.
