I am so sorry to hear of Rob's passing. My prayers are with Margo and your children as well as Sue and Brad and the whole family. I hope that the memories you hold dear will ease your pain somewhat. My grandmother loved working with Rob in the kitchen at Northside so many years ago and I greatly appreciated his expertise when I dropped into town and needed a bouquet. I hope you are able to take comfort, as believers in Christ, knowing that Rob is in fact more a part of your future than he was of your past.
