So sorry to hear about Robert's passing. He was definately an icon of South Congaree. We have known Robert a mighty long time. He lived behind us. We will miss his phone calls and a lot of other things that he would do. R.I.P Robert, you will be missed by many.

I will miss his visits. When he came by my house, we always drank a coke. We always enjoyed our visits. He will certainly be missed.
