I'm going way back. We used to walk to school together then they changed districts and Robby went to Carterville. He use to says the catsup on my sandwich was blood. That is the only thing I remember from way back them. But there was a lot fun times I'm sure Robby's sister Lynn was my best friend back then. Then had to go to a different school. Sorry Judy and Lynn and family for your loss. Jean Browning
