Awwwww...this makes me sad...Rob was such a great person....we were best friends in high school, and we would talk for hours on the phone, but we lost touch after that...about a year ago I drew a picture for him at Mike's Diner letting him know how important he was to me in high school, and gave it to his in peace my have no idea how much you were loved...
