I have many great memories of Rob. He was like a father to me. He gave me my childhood nickname, Nancy, when I became best friends with Erica in Junior High. I remember how handsome he looked in his police uniform. He taught me how to ride my motorcycle and took me to the DMV to take my test. Afterwards we went and had breakfast together. He was always good to me. I loved him like a father and I will miss him dearly.
