You were a thoughtful, engaging man with a variety of interests. I will miss discussing potential road trips across America and what I would be able to see. You were a font of knowledge. Your love of bird watching and your discussions of it have helped my knowledge on the subject increase. I remember I went to the isle of Arran and took a few pictures of birds I did not know. Showing them to you when I got back and straightaway you could tell me what they were and everything about them. Rest in peace Robert.
