Words seem inadequate to express the sadness I feel for you and your family at this time. Rob was my best friend growing up and he always had a way of making people laugh when he was around. He would kid and joke around but he also wore his heart on his sleeve. I don&t think many people knew that he was a very sensitive and caring person. He would act tough sometimes but he was a softy at heart. He truly loved his wife Karen and knew how lucky he was that she had chosen him to share her life with. He was always more concerned what others thought or felt, than about his own feelings. I regret that I did not get to see him more often the last twenty years, but I am happy for the times we shared growing up. He was an awesome artist and had a great imagination. We would spend hours trying to invent something no one had ever thought of before and he would make drawings that were very accurate to our ideas. Unfortunately, there wasn&t a big need for things like a toaster radio or a riding vacume cleaner. One time we decided to become singers after hearing a Beach Boys song and spent half the day harmonizing in a garage before we decided we should stick to riding bikes and skateboards.
But now he is gone from all the lives he left his mark upon and all I can think about is how lucky I was to have been able to call him my friend and how empty the world is without him.
So long friend.
