To Aunt Deborah and family. Sincere condolences from your Columbus, Ohio family. I'll remember fishing with Robert and Mr. James Christian every time we would visit grandma Mabel's house. Robert and Mr. Christian tell so many fishing lies - on how the big one got away. I would always joke with Robert on how much he could eat. He was a good man and will be sorely missed ! Continue to look to the hills from whence comes your help, your comes from the Lord.
