I always would look for Robert when I was in high school - so he could get the dance floor hot and shame all the other boys who couldn't dance like my friend Robert!!! I saw Robert in May and we hugged and he asked "how long have we known each other?" I said too long, that is why you asking the question senior citizen!" We cracked up and we departed from each other. See you Robert when I meet you in heaven. Thanking God that our paths crossed and I called you "friend." Psalms 27

We were shocked to hear of Robert's passing. We met him in the ballroom community a few years ago. He was always so friendly and he loved to dance. He was smooth and was always a gentleman. He will be missed. We pray for his family and hope you will find comfort in God's word. Kathye and Gregory Norman
