Robert was one of the most generous, thoughtful, intelligent, people I have met in my lifetime. Though my husband and I did not have the opportunity to know him for many years, we enjoyed his company for the years we did. Thank you Rita for bringing Robert into our lives! Love, Francie & Bob Turner
