Big Rob…I’ve told you countless times but you never truly understood what a positive influence you were to me and how much you lead to my life’s dedication to a career in emergency services. You were a true friend, in ways that few knew, you always had my back and made sure I knew it! Your dedication and determination to be the best you could be regardless which uniform you were wearing at the moment is something very few will ever be able to mimic. No one quite knew which uniform you’d show up wearing but when things went bad we always knew you would show up!! Your heart was huge and led you in everything you did, your smile was a light that shined so brightly. It all sounds cliche and you’d be rolling your eyes hearing all of this. But the world needs to know who you were!! Brother the last time I saw you, I hugged your neck, I kissed your cheek, I told you I loved you and I didn’t want to leave but I had a duty to perform. It broke me, in that moment I didn’t think any of us could hurt more. I know deep down you understood why I had to do my job tho. Just know I didn’t want to leave you then and I didn’t want you to leave us here now. We already miss you so much. I love you Big Rob!!!! 🖤❤️🖤 Keep Bimbo in line for us til we all are back together again! 🖤💙🖤
