Rob touched many lives with his kindness and love. Especially for his two adorable children and his wonderful family. You all are with me in prayer and spirit. He will not be forgotten because he lives through each one of you. My heart aches for the suffering of losing him at such a young age but his suffering is over. I'm sure he's smiling down on you and will now be your own personal angel in heaven.
Love and prayers

My condolences to all of the Waelbroecks and the rest of Rob's family and friends. Rob was a great next door neighbor and the guy who got me interested in The Cars, Friday Night Videos, and David Letterman. A lot of great memories growing up. My deepest sympathies and my continuing thoughts and prayers are with the family...
