I didn't know Rob that well, and I'm much less eloquent than most of you, but I feel compelled to add my voice to this tribute. 
Rob was quiet, unassuming, but always smart, friendly and thoughtful. If the world was full of Rob Raskins, it would be a great world indeed.

HI folks,

Its me again. With some unfortunate news ......

Rob passed away at around 8 pm Pacific Time.  I was not there but his sister and a few friends were nearby.  He passed on peacefully with little or no suffering.

Lisa wants everyone to know she really appreciates their heartfelt support, prayers and thoughts.  The get well cards some of you signed were read to Rob in the last 24 hours as were other messages such as emails and FB posts over the last days. We really really appreciate the support.

I will be offline over the weekend.  I will send another update Monday sometime.

Rest easy tonight, Rob. You will be missed. Peace and blessings.
