Christine, words can't express how sorry I am to hear of Rob's passing. Your voice message was received at my brother-in-law's home. When I got home from work yesterday he called me to come over and hear your message. I know this must be a very hard time for you now. I wish I could have been able to come today. You and your family are in my prayers. With love, Pam Vail
