Joan and Lexie, Rob was a wonderful person whose passion for his family and golf made me smile. No matter if he was smiling or trying to figure out a difficult case, I always knew he cared about what was happening. He helped countless people over the years and was proud of his accomplishments yet always humble. He truly loved you both and was so proud of you Lexie, especially happy to see your recent successes. He will never be forgotten and always hold a place in my heart as not just a boss but a caring friend. Lisa
