    Our heartfelt sympathy goes out to Rob’s family, especially Michelle and Cary. Rob was a great brother-in-law and we will miss him dearly. I remember riding in one of his Mustangs when he was dating my sister before they were married. Needless to say it was fast! God Bless you Rob, may the angels lift you up to touch the face of God!
