As convention drew to a close, there were many kind words spoken of Robert. Jack Kralik, Robert’s longtime friend and Vice President told the story of how he came to know Robert, and a little bit of their history together.
As we promised, here is the video of the loving speech that closed 2011 Tonner Con:
Robert gets a special gift from his staff:
Just wanted to say (again!) THANK YOU for the greatest 20 years ever! You’ve all played a significant role in making Robert’s dreams come true! Thanks for joining us at Con, either virtually or actually, and from the bottom of our little vinyl hearts, WE LOVE YOU, dear collect-Os!
Now, that we’re home safe and sound, (and we hope you are too!), it’s time to get back to work! Us little elves have another Convention to plan! Burlington, VT: Scary Tales! 2011 Halloween Tonner Con! Be there, or be . (Registration starts June 1st).
