My sincerest condolences on the loss of Robert. I worked with him at the University of Toronto for many years. When he left us I was saddened as he was a kind and soft spoken individual, who was always super nice to me. Robert is now with his parents and brother, reunited forever. Someday we will all be together. When someone you love becomes a memory, that memory becomes a Treasure. RIP Rob.
