  7. Privileged to know Robert. He helped direct and me the over the last thirty plus years. He came from Texas to Oklahoma meeting the builder I had contracted with to make sure I was heading down a safe path. Follow up visits with Fee Dee to see Tulsa friends/family and add little touches in fellowship and workmanship. I cherished the Saturday morning calls from him and FeeDee. His family can be proud and wish I could be there with them this week.
