We met Robert and Dodie more than twenty years ago and he was of great assistance in furnishing our Orchard Park, NY and St. Augustine, Fl homes. And we enjoyed visiting their North Tonawarda home and their treasures. His items were unique and we have fond memories of all his “finds” on his shopping trips and “going to market”. And he always reminded us he “didn’t do KMart”. He will be missed.
Love you Uncle Robert and you will be missed! Hang in there Aunt Dody love you lots! Hope to see you all soon. 🙂
Dear Dorothy, I am sincerely saddened by the passing of Robert. What a sincere and wonderful man he truly was. Our loss here on earth is surely heavens gain. I used to have fun with you guys. Love, Sue.
We were saddened to read about Bob’s passing in today’s news. He left a long lasting impression not only in our homes but also in our hearts. Bob had incredible vision; he could make any room look polished yet comfortable.
Please accept our deepest sympathy.
Sue & Burt
I so enjoyed my decorating with Bob and looked forward to his sales at your home. I just have to look around my home to see his special touches. It was so easy to become friends with you and Bob. He will be greatly missed.
