I just learned of Robert's death. I am greatly saddened by it. I have always appreciated his musical talent which I considered among the greatest. He thrilled us, his friends at RVHS. I was happy to have shared a few moments with him in recent years.

Dear Joyce and Joel,
I am so very sorry for your loss. I sadly regret that I will be traveling, and cannot attend the service. Please accept my deepest condolences to you both. I loved Robert. He was a profound influence on my life and career, both through our friendship and the music we shared growing up. I will never forget our times together and all the fun we had. I only wish he and I had remained as close as we were many years ago, but in truth he was never ever very far from my thoughts. I share your sadness and wish you peace, love, and strength. I hope I may share a visit with you soon.
Yours sincerely,
Danny Schliftman
