I want to extend my sympathy to your family on the loss of Robert. I got to know him a little when he would come into the Menasha Library where I worked. I always enjoyed talking to him and hearing about his grandchildren. We talked about my husband's job, he had gotten laid of and Robert always asked how things were going. We also talked about his trips to the casinos. He really brightened my day when he would come in to pick up some more paperbacks to read. He has been coming into the library for many years and he will be missed by the staff. He was a genuinely nice person.
