    Lorraine and I were saddened to hear that Rob had lost his very courageous fight with cancer. We are grateful for the family reunion at Daytona Beach in 2000 which is the last time we saw any of the large Darker family. Every family ought to have at least one, or more, to help in keeping in touch. This was the only one I remember for our/yours extended family.

    God Bless you all.

    Love,

    I knew Rob when, as kids, he was cousin Robbie. He was always such a sweet kid and I’m sad that as adults we lived so far away from each other that we didn’t really know each other as grownups. It’s a comfort to think he’s passed some of himself on through his children and grandchildren. God bless you Robbie.
