    The Raven Family of Grayslake, IL wishes to express our sincere and heartfelt condolences on your son’s passing. Although I did not know your son, my son, Joshua, is only 3 months older than Robert and perhaps the kids knew each other. I hope and pray that in time you will be able to heal and wish both parents and your 3 daughters peace, tranquility, health and the strength to heal and move forward with your respective lives as your son watches over all of you here on earth. Sincerely, Lowell. B. Raven, CPA, Grayslake, IL

    I am so sorry for your loss. I enjoyed having Robert as a student in English class
    his freshman year as he gradually exhibited his great sense of humor throughout
    the school year. He was a great kid! My thoughts are with all of your family as you
    mourn the loss of your son and brother.
