I was stunned to hear of Rob's death. We hadn't been in touch since leaving Amherst, but were quite close freshman year, when we both lived in North. We shared a love of music, and loved listening our favorite records together and introducing each other to new stuff. Sometimes I would come home from class to find him sitting on my bed listening to my stereo since he didn't have one in his room. My last memory of him was at graduation, when he happened to be seated directly behind me during the ceremony. I was struggling to maintain my composure through a flurry of emotions--exhiliration, fear, and grief over having to leave Amherst and the many good friends I made there. I caught his eye and he understood immediately and took my hand. I'll miss him very much.
