So very sad to see that Robert has passed. I always looked forward to speaking with him when he came into Home Depot. I have been off for a few years now but I was able to speak to him one day I had stopped into the store and catch up on how he was doing. He was such a great man. I am truly sorry for your loss. My condolences
