In late 2012, I had an opportunity to meet Bob through his stepdaughter Yayoi and make a movie memoir for him titled “ROBERT LEE SMITH” and showcased in SHOW SUITE and Movie Memoir sections. “A Morning with Bob and Muffin” is its subtitle. Muffin was a near-blind dog. Bob later gifted me a well-kept mini-tripod. I loved using it until it stopped working properly. On this past May 14, Yayoi, the writer/director of “War Brides of Japan,” lost her stepfather. I lost a client whom I call friend, who once lived in Taiwan. I am sure he is in a better place now.
