    Robert and I worked together for many years at Berkeley Mills. I was always impressed with his hard work and loyalty to his job. I remember him as a man with great love for his family. And it was obvious that his children were truly the light of his life! I was shocked and saddened to hear of Robertís passing. But, I find comfort in remembering his great character. I regret that I canít participate in the visitation or funeral service. May God richly bless you as you lean on Him during this time.
