Only the good die young as the song goes . . . My heartfelt condolences to the Bruttomesso family. I have not seen Rob in years, he recently friended me on facebook and I teased him about not showing his face. Seeing this picture here floods me with so many memories from high school, and each and every one of them are good! He was great man, Happy Birthday in heaven Rob, may you rest in peace.

Our deepest sympathy to to all of the family and friends of Rob. Although We hadn’t seen Rob in a few years, we fondly remember him at so many Follert parties. He was always a friendly face and the kind of guy that would go out of his way to say hi and strike up conversation. We hope that he’s at peace and will never forget his place in our family.

To Rob's family, I was just told about your untimely loss of Rob and I am deeply sorry. I can't imagine your pain. I don't think there is anything worse than the loss of a child. I have known Rob since January, 2009 when he contacted my rescue to adopt Caylee. I liked him immediately and my first impression stood the test of time. We stayed in touch throughout his time with Caylee and when she passed, he then adopted Deedee from us. Rob continued to stay in touch by email, phone calls, and social media sharing stories about Dee. He so enjoyed his girls and always made me smile at what a good home he had provided for them. When Dee passed, we continued emailing as friends. In the 10 years I had the privilege of being considered his friend, Rob was always kind, caring, and good hearted...truly a special person. I understand things will never be the same, but my prayer for you is that in time you allow yourselves to find some happiness in remembering his unique qualities, sharing good memories and happier times, and knowing the wonderful son you raised, Rest in peace Rob, your loving approach to life made a difference to many.

Dear Barbara, Roger, Paula, Tracey, and family,
Sending you the deepest sympathies for your loss of Rob. Our hearts weep and share your sorrow. Rob was a gentle and kind young man who always stepped up for his family, friends, and pups, whether for a family gathering, staying here in Cali to complete a huge project expertly or generously giving his Rolling Stones T-shirts to Meijin. I'll always remember his quiet smile and chuckle, gentle nod, the way he looked people in the eye and listened with his heart, and the thoughtful intelligence he applied to his projects and conversations. May the shared memories and love comfort you all. May Rob rest in peace.
Loving hugs.
