You were always the cousin that was always having a good time, always had a smile .
You loved your family and we loved you.
Crazy to even comprehend how fast you left.

Hard to share one memory because most of my childhood i was his little shadow...my 1st yell for help and he was out the door ready to fight 5 guys and they all backed down...He said he was surprised i didn't run but you you have a man like Rob by your side, you don't need to run...He was one of the toughest, strongest and loyal men i have every known...He was not only my best friend but my brother...I'm going to miss you brother.
