Dear Debbie,
Michelle and I have always fondly remembered the times that you and Bob were our "townies". You will always be thought off with a sly smile on our faces. To this day, I can not eat fried chicken without thinking of you and our time together at Redfront! God bless You and Robbie. He was a good man, and will always be considered a dear friend.

To Debbie, Rob and the family and friends of My brother Robert. My thoughts and prayers are with you in this time of sadness. He was always the humour of our family. I never remember my brother without a smile and one of the joys of his life after his family was to bring a smile to those around him. He will be missed. It is often said the good die young and in his case that so fitting. Goodbye Robert you were a wonderful brother to grow up with. Marvin and Almudena Daily

What moves through us is a silence, a quiet sadness, a longing for one more day, one more word, one more touch, we may not understand why you left this earth so soon, or why you left before we were ready to say good-bye, but little by little, we begin to remember not just that you died, but that you lived. And that your life gave us memories too beautiful to forget.

Dear Debbie, Rob, and family:
I was so sorry to hear about Bob's passing. Of all the people I worked with over the years in radio, Bob stands out as one of the best. He was truly one of the good guys, and I know he will be greatly missed. My deepest sympathy to you all.
