A Memorial For Our Friend Rob

It is with a very heavy heart that I report to those of you who don't already know that our friend Rob has very unexpectedly passed away from complications of pneumonia.

Though I never had the honor of meeting you in person, we had some really great times on the Dis. Thank you for being a wonderful person, for being there for the voyage that was planning my wedding, and for sharing so much of yourself with us.

My deepest condolences to Scott, his husband, I don't even have the words.

Scott asks that in lieu of flowers, a donation be made in his name to the Moonlight Players Theater in Clermont, Florida.

Oh my goodness. What sad news. He brought such light to this board. He will be missed.

Although I never had the pleasure of meeting him, I felt as if I knew him.

And that speaks volumes to the type of person he was...

I am extremely saddened to hear this. Scott you have our most heart felt condolences and prayers. May your heart always be filled with memories of your love and the life you two had built together. We had never met Rob or Scott but I was hoping to in a few months at Gay Days.

Words can never truly express the heartache of loss just know we are thinking of you and those around you who lost a great man.

I must admit that I an surprised about how sad the death of someone I never met is making me.

To all of those who were lucky enough to have met Rob, and especially to Scott, I offer my condolences.

I am in shock and disbelief at the news of Rob's passing.

I had the luck to briefly meet Rob and Scott in person at WDW on Gay Day a few years ago, but it was his online presence that made us friends. He will be missed.

My deepest heartfelt condolences to you Scott. I am so very sorry to see this news.
I didn't post on this board often, but I always enjoyed reading Rob's posts, I could feel his personality through his words.
I can tell he was an amazing person.
I am so sorry

I am saddened at my missed opportunity to meet someone who must have been a quality person.

Scott, you have my deepest sympathies. Though I too have lost a mate, I cannot begin to imagine how you feel.

Oh my goodness I am just so stunned and sad. Like many here, I never met Rob in person but I really felt that I knew him through how strongly his personality came through in his posts--and I was very much hoping to meet him and Scott some day.

Scott---I just cannot fathom how hard losing Rob must be for you. My deepest condolences.
