    My deepest sympathy to Robs, fiance, family and friends. My relationship of Rob was brief but pleasing. I met Rob as a customer in Falcon Ridge a year ago and hired him and his crew beginning of May. It was then he showed his true character his passion for his wife. He had shared with me his joy and excitement of a father to be. In that brief time it was easy to fall in love with Rob as a friend.
    To the family and friends, “Robert was truly a man of good character”. May God bless his soul.

    Dear Donna & Family: We just received the sad news of the unexpected loss of Rob. We send our belated condolences and say “As friends (old or new), as neighbors or just acquaintances, and whether we are near or far away. How many times we’ve laughed, ate, and shared memories together? Well, NOW IT’S TIME THAT WE SHED TEARS WITH ALL OF YOU AND GIVE SUPPORT IN THE DAYS, ETC. AHEAD! For we see another void that’s now again in your lives & hearts from another loss in your family that deeply grieves all of you, the loss of Rob. Each day, as you individually cope, may each of you be strengthen by the support of Psalms 46:1 quote, “God is for us a refuge and strength, A help that is readily to be found during distresses.” And the assurance of Numbers 23:19 quote, “God is not a man that he should tell lies, Neither a son of mankind that he should feel regret. Has he himself said it and will he not do it, And has he spoken and will he not carry it out?”

    May it bring comfort in knowing that during your time of individual grief, Jehovah, the God of All Comfort, and his son both see and feel your tears, pain and the “on-going” challenges of physically missing Rob’s presence & personality. And to give Hope and comfort our broken hearts, Jehovah with his son have definite plans to again physically restore on Earth our loved one’s life whose now in the memory of our Creator & Life Giver as guaranteed at Acts 24:15, Revelation 21:3-5 & Isaiah 45:18.

    Donna, may Jehovah’s plans give confidence in the future and inner-peace.

    An Acquaintance & One of Jehovah’s Christian Witnesses

    My dear Bob, you are in my thoughts and never more so than now, as your birthday is tomorrow. And although my heart is broken from the tragedy of losing you, I gain strength from the love and support shown by your dear friends and in knowing that your life had found such a happy place. We didn’t connect as much in the last few years as you proudly took control of the direction of your life but the memories of being Auntie Bev for you, your brother, and your friends, through your childhood, teen and young adult years will stay deep in my heart forever. You were always a beautiful soul and you always had my love. The sound of your laughter will never fade. Always and forever, Auntie Bev.
