    I will sure miss Robert. He always made me smile and laugh at work. (Ht 102) I will always remember him asking me if I wanted a green card and if I’d broom his house. Rest in peace
    Prayers and strength during this time of sorrow.

    Sending prayers to family and friends I met Robert when I started work at HT 102….he was such a character! Always joking around and always telling me to be sure I gave him his HT points on his customer card! He would come in when we were stressed and slammed with work and make us laugh! I will miss him very much!
