Chris and Rick and family. I am so sorry for your loss of Robbie. Chris I remember you bringing him home when he was born. Reading about him it sounds like he was a loving man and son to be proud of. If he is anything like his parents I know this to be true. Know that you are all in my thoughts and prayers.

I’m so sorry that Rob’s life was cut short. “Robby” was a fourth grader in my class at Fresno Elementary and he was such a sweet young man with such a wonderful family. I had lost touch with him, but would hear about him from time to time from his sweet mama, Chris. Please know you are all in my thoughts and prayers at this difficult time.
