Marie, Lucille, Becky and Jason ~ so very sorry to hear about Bobby's passing. I knew him post high school, took a graduate class with him at Bentley and stayed in touch over the years. I tried to offer encouragement, from afar (LA) during his illness. Called him on 12.30.16 when he hadn't answered a few emails. "I'm driving" - I took that as a good sign! Found out on Tuesday Jan. 3rd that he passed - devastating news. Amazing that he passed two years to the day from his beloved Dad. Thinking of and praying for you all during this difficult time.

I am so sorry for your loss. May Bobby's memory always be for a blessing. We grew up together in Lexington and would periodically see each other at reunions, softball games and other parties. A gifted artist - he will be missed.

Condolences to the Alan family. Our thoughts and prayers go out to your whole family. Psalms 147:3 says God, "heals the broken hearted, and binds up their wounds." May God bring you comfort and peace.

I was so very sorry to hear about your dad. It is so hard to lose a parent so young. Everyone in the TLC program at Trottier sends their best wishes to you. You and your family are in our thoughts and prayers during this difficult time.
With sympathy and friendship,

I'm so sorry for your loss.
I just recently heard of Rob's (as I knew him) passing. I ran the weekly Blues Jam @ The Acton Jazz Cafe for several years where I met Rob. He was always a regular supporter of my Jam, a great guy who was always unpretentious with his musicianship and involvement at the Jam. A kind soul who will be missed by all that knew him.
