Something I should have said in my tribute post but forgot in my grief–
Robert was one of us. He had his fanboy moments–one example is him getting excited by the Illya!Ducky reference in “The Meat Puzzle” episode of NCIS. Another example is his love for Hamlet. He wore the costume for Halloween, and I’m 99.99999% sure that the Hamlet costume he wore as Napoleon in “The Mother Muffin Affair” of The Girl from U.N.C.L.E. was his own personal Hamlet costume.
It’s going to take a while before I’m over his passing, but I will. For him. He was a brave man who left the world better than he found it. He described his life as one of adventures.
Well, it’s our turn now to make the world better and have adventures. Rest easy, Robert; we’ll miss you always and you’ll always be in our hearts, but we’ll take it from here. And so I sign off tonight with a quote from your favorite play–
“Goodnight, Sweet Prince, and flights of angels sing thee to thy rest.”
