  1. “Fairfield. A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated Monday, August 18, 2008 at 1 p.m.”

    I missed this one earlier as Mr. David pointed out. Sorry about that, but I like the above quote. Celebrating a life is a far better thing to do then focus on a death. For are we not better people for knowing those who leave us to soon? I’m sure all who knew him are grateful that they did, and would not take back a single day. So, even though I did not know him, I say thank you to God for giving the world Robbie Greenberger. I have me own reasons for believing that no one is ever truly gone, so keep then in your hearts and in your thoughts.

  2. This is crushing news. I knew Robbie when he was a wide-eyed little kid, back when I worked with his dad at DC. His battle against his cancer was admirable. A pity he lost the struggle… My condolences to the Greenbergers.
