    What a great neighbor to have. Rob always had a smile and a kind greeting whenever we met on the street exercising or passing him working in the yard. Our boys and ourselves were sad to hear of his passing, recalling their childhood playing with Logan and Stephen in their yard.
    Our thoughts and prayers are with the family at this sad time.

    It was such a shock for us to hear that Rob passed away. He was always so sweet and such a wonderful friend to us. We will hold all of you in our prayers. Some people are harder to let go than others and Rob certainly was one of those. We are overjoyed that he is finally with his Savior but so sad we will not be able to hear that laugh or see that smile. He loved you all so much. Always bragging about how wonderful you all were. Hold those sweet memories and let us know if we can do anything at all.

    Rob’s passing came as a complete shock to me. We not only worked together in the mid to late 1970’s but were also close friends. We eventually lost contact with each other due to the challenges of ‘life’. In the meantime you two were able to raise two great sons in the blink of an eye. I am really thankful that we recently were able to reconnect. It was really great getting to see you both again. Your visit was one of the shortest days of my life, went by way too fast. Judy, you and Rob will always be in my heart as you well know. With much love, Larry
