knew his mother
I worked with Robert's mother. Everyone thought the world I her. I'll never forget the day the men came in to tell her that he was dead. Though I only heard of him, he was already in the Army when I met his mom I know his death was a big tragedy for he had been a top student and would have probably gone to a great career.
