  6. Dear Heather,
    We were so saddened to hear the heart breaking news about Bob. He was one of the kindest, most affable blokes in racing that we had the absolute pleasure of knowing.
    We will miss him greatly.
    RIP Bob.
    Jamie and Janet Edwards, and all at Emsley Lodge.

  7. Heather,
    We were really shocked to hear of Robbie’s passing and just want to let you know that our thoughts are with you all at this sad time.
    I first met Robbie when I worked at Mirvac and was introduced to him (Bob Barker) as being the ‘guru’ for Community Title developments. I was told that he had effectively drafted this legislation and he was held in extremely high regard by the top management of Mirvac. When, a few years later, we attended our first Burrinjuck trip, I said to Carol, “I know that guy”, she replied, “What, Robbie?” A small world indeed!
    He was a great guy. Humble, honest and clearly dedicated to his family. He will be sorely missed.
    Wishing you all fond recollections of the loving and caring man he was.
