Very sad indeed ... but I think it's great the way his son put it into a rather positive perspective elsewhere!

Rob will be missed by many, and that's for certain and for sure!!!

Wisdom is the domain of the Wis (which is extinct). Beauty is a French phonetic corruption of a short cloth neck ornament currently in resurgence..."
