Robert was like an old friend. I am handicapped too with spinal stenosis. I had Scoliosis as a child and it seemed like it would not escalate after I was out of my teens. Just a few years ago my spine was collapsing and I had the first surgery in 2011, Since that time I have had 2 more surgeries, but have not regained my posture. I am awkward, even with the walker! But I am lucky to have a hubby who brings me to appointments and does a lot. I always looked forward to seeing Robert on TCM. He brightened my day considerably. I think he will long be revered and remembered as a great host who really loved hosting TCM's great films. THough he can never be replaced, he has inspired countless people to continue on the path of great viewing, and even some younger movie fans.
Well said my friend MCannady1. Take care of yourself and regards to your dedicated husband. We will all miss Robert and what he has contributed to our enjoyment of the cinema over the years.
