Not sure what to say?

I just found out today at work. We use to work together at Home Shopping Network. For a while our friendship did fall apart, but it did come back. He did forgive me for which I am grateful. I wish I had found out earlier. I would not of been able to attend because of having to be at work. I am so glad to hear that his animals are getting good homes. He will be missed. Wish I could of heard him play. I only knew for a couple of years, but I know he had a good heart. I am very sorry...

To all our dear friends who loved Robert, I cannot tell you how moved I was at the crowds that showed up for Rober at the Oakey's visitation and the graveside service. The outpouring of love and support I received from all of you (and many of you I'd just met for the first time!) is something I will always treasure. I truly met angels without wings during that time, and feel that I now have a huge family of adopted brothers and sisters. My dear friend Emily came from Baltimore and without...

I was shocked and saddened to hear of Robert's passing. I'll remember him as that laughing, carefree, creative kid who always wanted to entertain others. My sympathies to Diane and all of Robert's friends.

Had some great times with Robert, going back to grade school. Great guitar player and loved the bands he was in during Middle/High school. Lately every year, I tried to keep in touch by going to see his awesome Halloween display with my family. Will miss Robert and extend my sympothy to his family.

I knew Robert from back in the 80's when he played in my band for a short time.I saw him for the first time in probably 20 years just a couple of weeks ago at the buchanan fair, and was happy to discover he hadn't changed a bit. I also know he was a good friend and bandmate to my brother Pete. I remember as many do his remarkable musicianship and quick wit. I know he will be greatly missed by those who knew and cared about him. My heart and prayers go out to his family and friends. Rest in...

I knew Robert in high school and remember hanging w/ him may times at the house. Those memorys of the band playing there and at other places I will always remember. One of the best times I rember was being in the Midnight Follies w/ him and his band at PH. Even though I hadn't seen him in years, I will always remember him. Through him I meet my wife and have have a wonderful family. Rest in peace my friend. You will be missed.
Our hearts and prayers go out to your entire family.

Diane - Always know that we cared very much for Robert and for You. In the last couple of years while Wolf & Robert planned the band we adopted Robert into our family. Watching & listening to him play his music was breath taking. He had a gift that many would have loved to have had and a talent that many admired. He was so very intelligent and what a imagination he had. I'm so sorry that he is now gone from this world. He'll be missed by our family but his memory will live...

Diane - I was so sorry to hear about your brother. I will always remember my visits to your house during our high school years with a smile. He was so cute. My thoughts and prayers go out to you.

A truly gifted musician, who will be missed by everyone that knew him.
