    I only knew Robert for seven months, through online means. But I can say honestly that he was a wonderful person, and that he really impacted my life in a wonderful way. I hope wherever he is, he’s finally resting comfortably… and that I’ll see him in the next life

    I have known Robert for over a decade and I'll always remember him as a great friend. My heart and thoughts go out to his family, friends, and Ruby who must be missing him so much

    I just wanted to wish Mr, and Ms Elkins well. I was very good friends with Robert, we had a bit of a falling out, but I always wished the best for him. I think he mentioned his friend "Dusty" Before, but we would help each other out all the time. He was such a sweet soul, albeit misguided sometimes. Please feel free to reach out.

    Dearest Robert,
    I may have only known you personally for a little over a year but I got to know you a lot. I am absolutely devastated to learn that I'll never be able to talk to you again. You were such a talent and a personality.
    I miss you dearly and I love you. You deserved so much better. xx

    Robert always took time out of his day for me, no matter how stupid my problems were, or how much of his own issues were weighing on him. I’ve never had a friend that was as there for me as he was, and I don’t think I will again now that he’s passed. He was so genuine no matter what, and I’m gonna miss that conviction, honesty, and love.

    Robert was a wonderful friend to me and I'll always cherish the memories he's left me with. To the parents, your son was so special, but anyone who was around him already knew that.

    I was shaken when i heard you had passed. I hadnt known until two days ago when i checked you page and seen the outpouring from friends alike. You were like a twin, sharing the same likes, always finding a way to cheer me up with i was down, and always finding ways to make me laugh. Like any siblings, we may have had a few things we never saw eye to eye with, but what we did, overshadowed the negatives. We were both fans of Metroid, and was that became our bond. We became closer over the bond we forged between our characters. And whenever i could, i would always try to help out the best i could. I really wish i had gotten a chance to meet you in person, and try all the recipes you were telling me about. But...maybe in the next life, if we ever meet again, we can get a chance to make them. I feel like ive lost a part of me, not just a friend, but someone i truly loved and cared about. Even if you didnt want me to, i still cared about your health, because in the end, you were my close friend. I love you, and i will always love you, in life, and in death. Goodbye my friend. May your spirit watch over us in death, and your loved ones safe. And i hope, we can all laugh and talk with each other again like we did 14 years ago.

    I only knew you for less than a year, but whenever you messaged me you always put a smile on my face. I'll miss our banter and talking trash with you, and I'll always wish we had more time, as this loss weighs heavy on my heart. I hope you're happy in the afterlife, while we look forward to meeting you again. <3

    You were someone who was very clearly passionate about the things you loved, and the work you created. You made a lot of people smile and feel joy. And you made the world that much brighter. I hope that you are at peace.

    My condolences to everyone that was close to Robert.

    While I only ever knew Robert online, after six years he became a real brother to me. Despite all the playful teasing back and forth, he was always there for me. He was probably one of the few people, the few friends, I knew I could be fully honest with without a fear of losing their friendship. Such a quality is super rare these days, and it was a sentiment I know went both ways. I'm going to miss his teasing, and his dark and offensive sense of humor. I'm going to miss grumbling about medical issues with him, or laughing at ridiculous online videos together. I'm going to miss getting previews of his stories despite not being into them, and telling him despite that his writing was still stellar. Just playing video games with him...I'm going to miss so much that it's hard to fit it all in a single entry...

    I really wish we'd gotten to meet in person one day...and maybe we will somewhere beyond this life.

    I love you Rob,
    Rest in peace my dearest brother and friend.

    -Aaron

    Psalm 34:18 “The Lord is near to the brokenhearted and saves the crushed in spirit.”
    Psalm 73:26 “My flesh and my heart faileth: but God is the strength of my heart, and my portion forever.” Matthew 5:4 “Blessed are they that mourn: for they shall be comforted.”

    I remember Bob's bear hugs! And I believe, in my recipe box, I still have the recipe he wrote for, 'how to make a sundae' when he was about 10. ❤️

    So sorry you guys are going through this. Praying for your comfort.

    I didn't know you very long but you always made me smile and laugh. I'm sorry you had to suffer so much in this life but at least you're not in pain any more. I'll miss you.
