Robert I am certainly going to miss you. I will always cherish our long talks about different things. My father always said you grew the best watermelons ever, then you lost your seeds !!!!! Iuse to buy you about that. Then when you fell and broke some ribs , you said you were goining home, I said no you ain't, you tried to get up and you said you're right I ain't! Well you are with our heavenly Father now and you can rest and be your self . We all plan to be there some day. GOD BLESS YOU.
