    Since i worked with Robb's wife for many years I got to chat with Robb many times over the years and I always came away feeling a little happier and feeling glad that our paths had crossed on that day.
    He was just always bright and positive, making sure you parted company with a laugh and a smile. My thoughts and prayers go out to his family.
