  • Robert became my good buddy when he lived at CCRC in Mt. Vernon. I did Activities, and he was the best attender, and it was then that we became fast friends. He had a fine mind, a great sense of humor and all my respect. He was a fine, fine gentleman, and I shall always cherish my memories of him. My life is
    better for having known him. He and my Father were good friends at CCRC, and when my Father passed, Robert came clear into another county to pay his respects. That meant so much to me. He was the best!!
    You have my sympathies.

    • Thank you, Barb, for your sympathy. My brother Tim and I are grateful for your kind memories of our Dad.
