Robert and I have been friends for many years. I’d always enjoyed his company even during his illness by staying in contact with him. RIP “BOb”

Robert was married to my first cousin, Carolyn. He had been in our family for many years and truly loved and cared for Carolyn and his children. I visited him with the Pastor and Stewardesses to give him communion. He was always glad to see us. As former Pastor Gipson said at his services yesterday, after he joined St Paul CME Church he was so happy and loved his church. Justin was so shocked and then elated to see his football pic in the video. He said, " Look Ma at those tennis I'm wearing that have come back in style." Robert will truly be missed. We will continue to pray for the family
