    On behalf of our family, Mary & Larry Cheshire, my brothers Tommy and Tarkenton Thompson, my sister in law Tracy Thompson and myself are so saddened to hear of Roberts passing. He was the “Ambassador of Carvers Kitchen” always a smile on face and always a warm greeting. He will be missed in the hearts of 100’s and 100’s people that he added, a bit of nostalgia, incredible southern food to their bellies and memory books. The Carver family is in our thoughts and prayers.
