CLIP 209:59: I can understand you taking things of value, but why take a photograph? HIS HOUSE WAS BROKEN INTO OVER THANKSGIVING AND SO MUCH WAS TAKEN FROM HIM. CLIP 208:58: Everything was trashed, you know, drawers were emptied and what I think they did is that they just emptied out everything they could and ran. ONE THING THE BURGLARS DIDN'T TAKE IS ROBERT'S BELIEF IN PEOPLE. SO WHEN PEOPLE AT THIS RECYCLING PLANT FOUND HIS PICTURES...HE SAYS HE WASN'T SURPRISED TO GET THEM BACK. CLIP 212:35: Instead of just thinking, well, it's just trash. We'll just throw that out. You know, it's good that somebody else cares. Stand-up: 25:49: This is the room where the album was found. An employee happened to be compacting cardboard when he came across the family treasure. CLIP 213:03: Maybe the world would be a better place if we all looked out and wondered about stuff like that. So often, we just don't take the time. A LESSON THAT ROBERT SAYS HE'LL TRY TO SHARE EVERYDAY. CLIP 213:31: It means the world. You know, two people won the lottery yesterday, well, you know, I won the lottery. IN EL RENO... CLIP 213:45: Thank you, thank you a lot. PATTI MOON, KOCO 5 NEWS.
