Mrs. Pat and Ginny, I want to let you know that Mr. Rob was a great being. I can remember like yesterday that he was playing with our son Cameron in the kitchen. The stunts he taught Cameron has been applied at home. You all are in our thoughts and prayers. There is nothing that two can't do when one is God and the other is you. God Bless...
