Dear Becky, Just wanted you to know that a friend of mine, Jeff, told me about Robert's passing. Robert helped me and my husband and daughter purchase cars at Graham; in fact, the one that I am now driving. He was always so professional and always very helpful to us. He will be missed by his family and all his clients. He was a very good man. Sincerely, Patty and Herb

Robert-words can't say how much I wish I had picked up the phone when you called last year, just to see how life was going for me. Life was busy-and i'm kicking myself now for not finding 10 minutes to pick up the phone and call you back. Soon I forgot, and when I got the friend request on Facebook Tuesday, it was too late. I'm sure you would laugh at it if you were here. That's how I'll remember you-the many many laughs we shared at Graham. The stories and memories we all made there. You were truly a one of a kind individual, and the world is a slightly darker place without you in it. For the 2 1/2 years I worked with you, I never once saw you without a smile on your face. You pranced Jason around that showroom..."say hi to the ladies Jason!" cracking up because all he wanted was his pawpaw. (I never got a hello from him!) You encouraged me to go back to school, helped me with things in the office, and always had a large stack of lease returns for me to enter "whenever you're bored"-which meant do them soon so you didn't have to. =) Robert, your memory will always be a part of me. I will miss you and think of you often. My heart aches for your family, and I pray that they find solace and comfort in the many memories they have. God speed my friend-until we meet again.
