Sending thoughts of sympathy to Robert's family and friends. This is such a tragedy and made even more bitter by happening the day before their senior year. I know I will cherish my senior even more tonight. So sorry for their terrible loss.

Robert was kind, gentle, helpful and a dedicated student with a twinkle in his eye when he smiled. I had the pleasure of being his guest teacher over the years from elementary school to SRVHS. He will be greatly missed by all who loved him. God Bless the Orlando family.

How very sad. When you're young you think you're immortal. Many of us could have suffered the same fate at that age but for dumb luck. Condolences to the family.
