Is this the meeting that Bob put his hand on his heart? An told everyone that Robert Griffith contacted him?
Steve Rubin, Doesn’t know, check with Roberta Jean Filomena – Sacco
IHMyHome.com, I thought with all the people in this group someone would know.
Steve Rubin, I am sure many knows, I hope more people in the group will take part in the discussion. I believe it will change with time.
Change is inevitable
Roberta Jean Filomena – Sacco
Steve Rubin, Bob looked Robert and I straight in the eye and put his hand over his heart and swore he had nothing to do with it. This was done at a board meeting, so many people saw him do it. Not only that, but Mr. Griffith told us that Bob called him more than once to complain about us!
