I just saw the signature on another thread, recognized Rob, and had to come here. I only "knew" him from his wedding thread, but he was so nice and full of love... I am so sorry for this loss of such a good person. This has made me so very very sad.

I am so sorry to read of Rob's passing. I never met him, but could tell what a great person he was from his posts. The wedding thread was the best...such a great love story! My heart goes out to Scott and the rest of the family!

It hurt alot to send that text. I was so back and forth on it (I actually called Soulmates to get her advice)... I didn't want to ruin your vacation, yet, somehow, I knew you guys would want to know as soon as possible. I also knew you would want to toast him and what better way than from the Disney Dream?

Rob was the first to welcome me to this part of the DIS... It was to his wedding shower thread... I believe his exact words were "grab a party hat and jump on in"...



Nelson and I did have a chance to meet Rob once in WDW and we were looking forward to bringing Amalia down this year to meet him. It is very sad to know that Amalia will never meet one of the people who helped me along in my journey to have her.


Rob, I'll miss you. It warms my heart to know that you are with your Mom. I know that you were completely and totally devastated by her untimely death and if we can't have you here - I am glad you are there ~ with her.

Scott, I can't even find the words to tell you how sorry I am. I can't imagine what you are going through. Just know that we are all thinking of you and wishing you the strength you need.

It was absolutely the right thing to do and I am very grateful to you for it.

I think today is Rob's memorial.
I still can not believe it.
I'm waiting for someone to say "April Fools!"

What a strange world ... right?
Essentially we are strangers.
But somehow we have this bond.
