Robby was one of the most genuine, caring, fun, hilarious, amazing people a person could ever know. He was my best friend growing up through elementary to middle School..I know growing up we both went our own ways and kind of lost touch but even though.. you were more than just my best friend you were like the brother I never had we shared so many great times hilarious laughs and memories from our childhood together from spending the night at each other's house every weekend going out on your dad's boat going to The conch House in st. Augustine riding bikes together everyday we went on adventures together we tried our first beer together...I could go on and on I know as we got older we both went our separate ways especially when you got your mom's eclipse and I got my car. I know when we saw each other around town we would catch up a little bit and we stayed in touch on Facebook but I'll always regret not reconnecting with you the way I wanted to. You'll always be my best friend and my brother.... I just found out because your grandmother told mine at church. I love you bro, Get some rest Robby and I hope to see you at the gates one day. My condolences go out to your mother and father and the family you will be greatly missed gone but never forgotten.

Dearest Joanne,
Please accept my condolence. I am in shock right now.
I had many memories that will always hold a special place in my heart. I will always remember the time I drove Robby to the clinic to pick up his medicine. We had quite a time trying to get him in my car. He kept asking me why I had a small car.
I said I was small and no need for a big car. We eventually laughed. I
I will always keep Robby in my heart.
Odie
