Thinking of all of y'all today. I remember him working at Sam's. I'd always walk in & say "hey Mr Gilmore!" He was always so nice. Love y'all very much.

I have many great memories of hunting with Uncle Robert. I can tell you that even at the age of 86 his aim was still great.
Until we meet again, God Blessing to you Uncle Robert!
