Rip Robbie. We only met you at haven less than two weeks ago you asked my son Morgan who is 10 did he want to play footy with you. The rest of the week you both met up every day and did swimming footy park arcade liked a couple of girls and was hanging out with them it was funny. You both watched Man U at the mash and barrel together. Morgan is glad he met you Robbie he liked you you both hoped you would meet at haven again! We went today and laid flowers for you very upsetting. Love to all your family and friends.
