Rob, you will live in my heart and memories forever. The best of my childhood was being around you and your sisters. I remember the amazing hockey player I idolized. The childhood stinker bomb king with an incredible smile and laugh. ” I’ll always remember you. When I have forgotten all the rest. You to me were true. You to me were the best. REST IN PEACE
