Robert Crede always impressed me as a young girl growing up in the little church at Brazito. I particularly remember how he cared for his mother as she aged and how well dressed and neat he always was. I only saw him a few times after I grew up but he remembered me even though I was just a kid then. Best wishes to Bobby as he ventures ahead, and peace to his family members remaining.
