My prayers are with you! Robbie was certainly a friend of mine. There wasn’t a time that Robbie didn’t have a smile when we talked. He will truly be missed.

I was so saddened to read about Robbie. He was a great guy full of life and I was fortunate to call him my friend. My thoughts and prayers are with you all. Go rest high on that mountain Robbie.

I am so sorry to hear about Robbie. I knew him a long time ago when he and my sister Jan went to Kicklighter School together. He was so sweet and had a beautiful smile. Jan still remembers him.
