  1. I am sorry to hear of Roberts passing. He was a good neighbor of ours when we lived on Mayo Ave and he always ate with us when he came by to hang out with my son we call Keno. His Mother Cathy also worked with me for a short time for the State of Kansas before she retired. May you rest in peace.

  2. Robb,

    I am still in disbelief. I wish we had more time. You were truly one in a million. You never stopped working but still would never say “NO” to anyone who needed help with anything. You had just gotten out of work and it was 7am on a Saturday and you still took the time to stop by my house to help me assess the bathroom and what you could do to make it all look better. You never once complained about anything. You will be missed by so many people. Above all, the one thing that continues to play in my mind over and over again is how much you love Autumn. There is no doubting that at all. Your words, every time you would call her, I hear you say to her ” Hello Beautiful!” no matter what you were dealing with or going through you always made it a point to say those words, even if you already spoke with her 50 times that day. Never once! True love never dies and it will live on in Autumns heart for eternity. We miss you already Robb. Keep Autumn, Shae and the rest of the family and all of the rest of us safe. You are our guardian angel now Robb. Fly high Robert – until we meet again !!
