So sad about the passing of my sweet cousin Rob. He was always so thoughtful & kind when his family was in need. I still remember fondly when my father, his “Uncle Billy”, was very sick with cancer, and Rob called us while we were with Dad prior to a serious treatment. His timely phone call meant so much to Dad and to the family. You will be missed cousin Rob!
