I had the opportunity to work with Rob for a very brief 17 months. But from the first day that I met him, he was just one of those people that you wish you had known for so much longer. He always had a smile on his face, always upbeat and positive, no matter how he was feeling. We were both expecting grandchildren at the same time, so we were able to have alot of great conversations about that. Rest in peace Rob. Such a brief stay......but we will always remember you.

May you find comfort in knowing that your loved one is safe in the memory of God, who will remember every detail about him and bring him back again, strong and young. “And I have hope toward God, that there is going to be a resurrection of both the righteous and the unrighteous.”—Acts 24:15 “Let his flesh become fresher than in youth; Let him return to the days of his youthful vigor.” Job 33:25.
