Rob, I will always remember our phone calls; how wonderful they were. Shayla would call, then say; Mom, Rob is on the line. I would speak to him; then Shayla would interrupt, saying, " why does your voice change when you speak to him" Rob would say, Mama, she just "jealous," and we would laugh. I will miss that "joke." Rob was truly an AMAZING, LOVING Young man. I LOVE YOU, My Bear. Mama Mickens
