"Claudia and family, my condolences for your loss of your husband/father Rob.  He will be missed.  Not having seen Friday Hbr. in many years, I still have vivid memories of our frequent Friday evening sales "meetings" at Jim & Inez's place. I remember flying up from Seattle on the mail plane with the entertainers for Rob's bachelor party. The prospective father-in-law, the sheriff, and the mayor were prominent attendees. Mothers Day was the next day and I remember in the misty, very early, morning, hiking up to Terry's, trying to wake Terry, borrow a car, collect the performers, get to the airport and still make it, on time, to a 10am champagne brunch in Kirkland with my folks and Grandmother.  Whew. What stories we all could tell of those days, if we could only remember. Rob had a rich, exciting, fulfilling, and interesting life, which is a whole lot for any of us to ask, God Bless Him."

"I miss Rob so very much and am grateful for the 44 years of friendship and loyalty.  Always a hearty laugh, a kind word and a hug.  I love you, my tequila shot drinking buddy and I'll think of you when I raise one.
To Claudia, Ryan and Justin, love you all and will always be there for each and everyone of you.  Bless his sweet soul that now flies free."

"I just can't think of a single individual who interacted with Rob who will not miss him.  He worked hard, played hard and could banter with the best of them.  Both San Juan and Hawaii will truly miss that guy.  As for me, I'll have those memories, but was really looking forward to sitting in that rocker near his and exchanging witty comments about each other.  So my heart goes out to Claudia, Ryan, Justin and the rest of the family.  We all loved Rob."

"Our Rob was one- of- a -kind kind of guy.  We so looked forward to the Browne Family spending time at their Kona home.  Fun parties and dinners and stories for us all.  Thank you for all of that.  Rob, we love you and miss you of course.  Hugs to Claudia and Ryan and Justin and Terry for now. I am sure Bill will be wearing an earring in his ear in honor of Robs'.   Love and Hugs   Bill and Luann"

"Rob you've been an inspiration in that precarious balance of life;
'Working Hard', 'Making Time for Friends and Family', and 'Searching out Adventures and Experiences'.
In Life's journey you are appreciated by the community, your friends  and your employees.  I feel fortunate to work for the Browne's and was able to call you 'Friend' as well 'Boss'."

"Claudia,  I am so very sorry for the loss of your beloved Robby.  Those early days of your relationship were always a joy to hear about when we worked together, and I know your lives together continued to bring you joy.   With love,  Pam"
