We would like to send our love to the family and friends of Rob. Years ago Lou and I went to see his production of A Secret Garden and it was clear Rob was a gifted person. Gone way to early from this earth. The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched. They must be felt with the heart. Rob was truly loved.

I met Robert about 18 months ago. It was so incredible how I found him. Through our business relationship we formed a friendship where he really became like a brother to me. I can hear his laugh in my head, and even his witty sarcastic remarks that would always make me smile. He was truly one of the greatest friends and people I have ever met. He meant so much to me, and I will miss him tremendously. His caring for me and for people was so incredible. He was so committed to his clients and friends and that is a rarerity in this day and age. I will forever miss this man and I will never forget this person God placed in my life who was such a blessing. I know today Rob walks on streets of gold with our heavenly father. May God bless the Intile family, and especially his mom who he loved very much.

Love, Don Caroleo
