Sincere Condolences to Roberts family. We were in K-3 together at Allendale school in the late 40's and early 50's. We moved into the city in 1952 but I always remembered Bob. I remember him as one active guy and seem to keep everyone on their toes.

The world lost a great man. You weren't rich, you weren't powerful. You weren't super successful. But you were wise, because even when things got bad and you were suffering terribly, I could always count on you to say, "Hey, there could be worser things". Wow... I wish more people had that perspective.
I can't wait to see you on the other side Bob. You promised that as soon as you were feeling better, we would go on a date. We were going to have a steak dinner with 12 gallons of homogenized milk, 12 big metal bowls of coleslaw, 12 bowls of mashed potatoes and 12 half gallons of vanilla ice cream. We were going to go dancing the twist and have a couple mixed drinks. Then, we were going to do a little fishing. I'm holding you to that. So, until we meet again, save me a glass of that ice cold homogenized milk!! Love you dearly Bob!!
