Dear Sally and family,
My deepest sympathy for all you. Sending a lot of love and prayers. Rob always had one of those big hugs to give and I loved the sound of his laugh! Take care! I miss you Sally!

Robb and I grew up (with Dave Strobel) on the same street -- California Ave -- he was part of a great group of somewhat rowdy youngsters who managed to get into just a bit of trouble on occasion. Many fond memories of his friendship. Cathy and I send our sincere condolences to Sally and the family, and to his mother Peg. Dave and Cathy Watters
