    Like everyone was shocked and deeply saddened to learn of Rob’s passing last Friday. Being a friend of the family for over 25 years now, I truly enjoyed his company during Chad and I’s
    teen years and as an adult will also greatly miss him at the next family BBQ of Chad/Wendy’s that I was always regularly invited to. The Metzgers are an outstanding family and I am proud to call them all friends. it is still pretty tough to put my mind around this.

    My thoughts and prayers are with you at this difficult time Jeanne, Kevin, Chad, and Denise and family.
