Bobby <3 my best friend.. This was never suppose to happen to us, not to our group of friends.. We were all suppose to grow old together, have kids together & still act like idiots for as long as we could fathom.. I love you more than n e thing & our lives will never be the same- there's a empty space in our group that will never be filled but that your absence will continue to leave a ache in our hearts. We love u so much & no one could ever take your place.. Forever & always

"When God closes a door, he always opens a window." Robert had a quenchable love of life, his family and his friends. He was the one who always brought that laughter and joy to us when we needed it. His love and respect for family, friends and strangers was something I am honored to have felt. In his "craziness" was always a sense of calm and control, he had the Gift to pull sorrow from you and make you laugh and smile. I pray for your family and I thank you for giving Rob to us. His spirit and joy he brought lives forever. may all who knew him continue to spread the love and joy as he did unselfishly. Rob. Brother. I will miss you and your always alive in my heart. Thank you for being a friend to all.

The simple mention of Rob's name brings to mind that incredible laugh, his wonderful sense of delight and humor in the world. The love of life and laughter he carried with him was contagious. His 'craziness' was balanced beautifully with his sense of love, loyalty, and respect. I am honored that he was a part of my life, and to be a part of his. Words cannot express my gratitude that he was here for me to have known him. Deepest love and condolences to his family, and thank you, Rob, for showing each of us how to truly live.

Dear Frank and Joan Maiello, We feel for you through your time of sorrow, it's just not right for a parent to bury a child. I hope it gives you a little peace to hear & know you had a very well mannered, special, funny, happy go lucky young man. We are honored to have known such a nice young man, he brought laughter and fun to our home many times, and he will be missed very much. As time goes by and people start to back away to there lives, just keep thinking of all the good things. I lost my mom going on 2 years March 20 th at 2:20 am, I was staying with her and the day I went home to shower and go back I sat on the couch to put shoes on & fell asleep, naturally I didn't make it back in time and I always said I would never let her leave our world alone but she picked the time while I was gone. This is so hard on me, and I still wonder if the tears will ever stop, but I do talk and write to her all the time, that seems to help. Please just hold together with the rest of your family and you will get through it but you will never forget it. There is nothing I or anyone can do for you to make it better other then let you know he will be in my prayers each day along with my mom's. If by chance you do need an ear or shoulder to lean on don't hesitate to call. God Bless you and your family. Freddie & Debbie Zavattaro

Dear Joan, Frank and Nicole, Joan, I am not sure if you remember me, but I remember Bobby from Packanack nursery school when he was there with Alyson. He was the most adorable little boy with a gentle soul. Even at that age, you could tell he had a gentle soul-wiser than his years. I didn't know of his passing until last night when I read it in the Wayne Today. I was very saddened that he went home so early in life. My heart goes out to you, as one never anticipates losing a child. Please know you are in my thoughts and prayers, Rebecca Bigsby

Joan...I just learned of your tragedy recently. Greg and I are both so sorry for this loss for you and Frank. I cannot think of anything much sadder than the loss of a beloved child. He was a very handsome young man and I am sure you raised him well. Again, our hearts will continue to go out to you and your family. Time heals somewhat, but you can never forget. Love, Anita and Greg Hampson xoxo
