  1. I am so sad by this news. I have fond memories of Robert and Linda walking down the halls of Rosslyn School; holding hands and being amazing role models for the students there. They shared their love with the students who needed it the most and always gave students hope. Robert was a character and will be missed. I am thankful for the short time I got to work with these two – they are inspiring!

  2. My heartfelt condolences to you all. In all the years I knew Robert he was always so friendly to me. I loved listening to his stories. His devotion and dedication to his family never went unnoticed. He will be missed deeply but never forgotten. May he Rest In Peace.
