Rob's Passing

Thank you, netsirk, for sharing this news. I just came online to post the same information. I know that everyone here had a stake in Rob's recovery and we are all terribly saddened by this loss. To his family, I hope that you are comforted now by your memories of the healthy, happy Rob who was part of your lives for so long. To those who are now struggling with these diseases, I urge you to continue to fight. Rob fought a good fight and we owe him our efforts to keep that fight going.

My best to all,
Ruth Cuadra
Diagnosed AA 10/96, MDS/RA 6/98, MUD/BMT 10/6/98

This is such sad news

I am so sad and so sorry to hear this. I had so hoped and prayed that Rob would regain his health. A little over a month ago, I mailed him a card. He wrote back thanking me for the encouragement. He said how much the communications with others had comforted him and encouraged him. I know this forum was important to him.

To his family, I know their loss is very difficult. It was obvious from his writing that Rob was a man of great strength, courage, and faith--a man who will be dearly missed. My thoughts and prayers are with them.

Oh I'm so sorry to hear he lost his battle, I was really willing him to pull through. It's not fair that someone so full of life should go as far as he did and still be taken away. I shall think of him and his family today.

For those who followed Rob's story:

Rob is mentioned a number of times in Vera's Transplant thread. PH Steele described a letter from Rob's sister, following his death, in this post.
