  1. Rob was someone who was there even when he wasn’t standing beside you. He had a way of letting you know he cared and would do anything for friends and family no matter how the background changed.

    I will miss you dear friend, so very much. Thanks for your friendship and support throughout the past 40 years.

    Blessed are all of us who were lucky enough to share precious memories with Rob.

    His free spirit in life will only fly even higher now.

    It seems like life just gets away from us all then we are brought back to reality. We were very sad to hear of the accident and loss of Rob. We are so very sorry for your and our loss. Unfortunally we will not be able to attend the momorial service for Rob.

  6. I remember Rob from Sports Courts. He was such a nice guy. I have often thought of him through the years, and will continue to do so. Take care.

  8. Michaud Family,

    Please accept my sincere condolences for your loss. My memories of N 60th street and the Brownell School playground are as fresh as yesterday. There was rarely a day that football and or/baseball games were not played. I will remember the Bells, Michauds, Lees and Emerys spending countless hours together. May your pain soon be replaced by beautiful and lasting memories. Garry know my thoughts are especially with you and your dad.

    For the Michaud family it is with great sadness that I will not be able to attend the service. My love and empathy are with you.

  10. To the Michaud Family,

    I want you know you have been in my thoughts and prayers and I was sorry to learn about Rob’s passing. I remember attending Rob’s 3rd birthday party as I was a classmate of his at Brownell and Mickle Junior High at that time. He was a special person then at such a young age.

  11. I was shocked to hear of Rob’s passing. My condolences to the family. I remember Rob from Brownell to Lincoln Northeast. My daughter asked me if he was at the reunion at Mistys in Havelock in 2004, I could not remember seeing him there. It seems as though the good die young. Such a nice person, and you just never know when something like this will happen. Take care everyone.
