Would I use you or yourself in the following sentence?

"I feel honored knowing Robert and yourself kept me in your thoughts all these years."

"I feel honored knowing Robert and you kept me in your thoughts all these years."

Or, would I put you before Robert?

No, you cannot use "yourself."

There's no difference between "you and Robert" or "Robert and you."

To add to what GG said, 'yourself' is a reflexive pronoun, which means that it is only used if 'you' is used earlier in the sentence.

You hurt yourself.

I hurt myself.

They hurt themselves.

We hurt ourselves.

He hurt himself.

She hurt herself.
So therefore, "Please feel free to contact Robert or myself" is ALSO entirely wrong.
Good etiquette would say that you would say the one who was older and/or more distinguished first.

Grammar Geek So therefore, "Please feel free to contact Robert or myself" is ALSO entirely wrong.
You'll hear it, but it is not considered good style.
Put a comma after "honored", so that it is clear the honor is about Robert and you keeping me in your thoughts (as opposed to the honor being that the subject knows Robert and you).

"I feel honored, knowing Robert and you kept me in your thoughts all these years."

"staff" can't be just one person.
