Rob was a very special person. He was my mother's hairstylist for years and always did a great job. He was a very close and longtime friend of my brother Steve who passed away 5 years ago. I did get to visit with Rob in the hospital and even with the diagnosis he had received, he was very upbeat. He even insisted I take some desert to my mother as he had more than he could eat. Rob will be missed. My heartfelt prayers go out to family and friends.

Please accept my deepest condolences for your loss. I know you will miss your loved one very much, but as you cherish fond memories. I hope you find comfort in Almighty God's reassuring words at Psalm 34:18 that He is near to those broken at heart and He saves those crushed in spirit. Isaiah 25:8 mentions He purposes to swallow up death forever and wipe tears from all faces. I hope you find comfort in these thoughts during this difficult time.

Prayers for you all at this time of great loss

So saddened by your loss. I worked with Rob in a mall hair salon when he moved back to Anderson. He was a pleasure to work with. What I remember best about Rob was how much he loved his family and he adored his nieces. It gave him so much joy to help them with "pageant hair!" I know you will miss him greatly!

I'm sorry for your loss. The Bible provides comfort. "And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away." Revelation 21:4 "Do not marvel at this, because the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice 29 and come out, those who did good things to a resurrection of life, those who practiced vile things to a resurrection of judgment." John 5:28, 29
