This is something that no one seen coming..... Couldn't believe the news when I heard it! You would always say how thankful you were that I was family to your family and how I was such a good person. The last time I seen you, you rubbed my belly and said you couldn't believe that the kids you watched grow up are having kids of their own now . you were looking forward to seeing Rosemary...... Hurts that you won't be here in person. But your spirit will be! Watch over mom Amanda ! She needs you still and ik she's hurting everyday. And there's nothing that any of us can do but be there for her. When I came over to the house it was too quite, didn't hear your music playing or your loud voice ........ Silence is the worst. Mom is strong, just let her know she still has you! You are heavly missed❤💯😔

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.
