    We are so sad and will really miss Rob, even though we know he is where we are all waiting to get. We keep looking at pictures from card club and he is always laughing. Rob had the best laugh. We can hear his laugh in our minds! Our hearts and prayers go out to Mary and family. Heaven has another very fun and talented angel!

    Mary, Kevan & Family; I spoke with Ryan yesterday and heard the news of Robb. I am deeply sorry for your loss. The first thing that came to mind was Robb coaching the boys in basketball. And when I’d come for haircuts and Robb would be getting home from work, or he would be taking your grandaughter outside to play. How hard to lose a husband, father, grandfather! My prayers are with you, along with my heartfelt sympathy!

    Dear Mary and Family,
    Praying for you during this difficult time. Robb was so much fun to be around. I will always remember him on the Great Wall in China. He had so much fun on that trip.

    Mary, my step-son and his wife live across the street from you. On Monday afternoon they had a baby boy, who they named Reed. Hearing the name bought back a flood of fond memories of the whole Mattson family. Later that same afternoon I was telling my daughter Kaylan about the Reed Mattson I was engaged to years ago. It was she who then told me she had heard that Kevan’s dad, Robb, had passed away on Sunday. The joy of our new grandbaby, Reed, was saddened by the loss of your Robb. Mary, I pray that God will grant you and all the Mattson family His healing power and His peace.
    Sincerely, Joanne
